Purple Fiddle Hummus

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"While on our honeymoon in eastern West Virginia, Joe and I frequented the 'Purple Fiddle', an eclectic coffee shop and cafe with yummy wraps, soups, sandwiches, and the best hummus I've ever tasted! Once we visited for the second time, I just had to ask one of the employees what the secret was to this 'it's got a kick to it' hummus: red cayenne pepper, not just black pepper, alongside cumin, sea salt, and fresh cilantro. Yum! I could eat this hummus with anything from carrots to grilled pita wedges! Garnish hummus with extra cilantro (and lime slices if you have them)!"

Made it exactly as noted in my food processor. Had lots of cilantro to use from my garden. Fresh with a kick. Could eat it all in one setting.

Delicious. I liked the addition of the cilantro.. was a very yummy lunch
