Pine Nut and Cilantro Hummus

pine nut hummus

We’re back from Hawaii! Photos soon =) Today was unpacking/cleaning day, so I was in a snacking mood and made this yummy pine nut and cilantro hummus!

Last time I went home to visit my family, my mom and I experimented with different hummus recipes. We made this delicious cilantro and jalapeño hummus, which was gone before the day was over! Recently, I tried a storebought flavor of hummus with pine nuts. It was really delicious, and since I prefer making my own homemade hummus, I thought I would give it a try. This pine nut and cilantro hummus is really flavorful, and goes very well with vegetables or pita chips!
