Cilantro Lime Hummus
I was a very spoiled foodie when I lived in Indianapolis.
There were a lot of great places to eat with a lot of variety, no matter which part of town you were in.
Cajun, Mexican, German, it was all delicious.
When I moved to Jacksonville, I had a hard time finding places I liked.
It took me a few months to figure it out, but what I found was that Jacksonville has a really great food truck scene.
I started a food truck group at work and we tried to hit a truck at least once a week.
My favorite by far is the Fusion Food Truck.
True to its name, it fuses Indian, Thai, and Mediterranean cuisines.
Their Cilantro Lime Hummus inspired me to create my own version.
- Garbanzo beans (Chickpeas)
- Garlic powder
- Can opener
- Cutting board
- Measuring cups
- Measuring spoons
- Citrus juicer
- Food processor
A few things: If you want a creamier hummus, you can take the time to peel the membranes off the garbanzo beans.
I know it’s time-consuming but it really does make a difference.
I don’t do it every time, and it’s totally optional.
Also, when I get the Cilantro Lime Hummus from the food truck, they serve it with pita bread.
I usually use tortilla chips when I make my own.
That’s the beauty of fusing cuisines, so much variety!
