Coriander Hummus Recipe

I remember the first time I ate coriander as a child and I still giggle thinking about it. I was in a Vietnamese restaurant with my parents and coriander was a garnish on my plate, I had no clue what it was.  I told my parents it was herb that grows on the pavement and my parents and I just burst laughing and couldn't stop. It was a meal out I will never forget!

That said, I liked it and ever since then it has become my favourite herb of all. Coriander divides people, some think it tastes like soap but personally I love it and use it A LOT.

I never buy hummus as it's such an easy snack to make and takes less than 10 minutes, I like mine with plenty of coriander in it of course. It's great to bring on picnics or to eat for aperitif with crunchy vegs or nice crackers. Once you've made it, you'll never eat store-bought hummus again!
