I had the chance to try Gourmet Garden herbs – let me just tell you, BIG WIN! I’m and expert at killing plants and wasting fresh herbs. I had never heard of Gourmet Gardens (fresh herbs in fabulous little squeezeable containers) but I was instantly hooked. No more throwing away fresh herbs that I forget about!
There were so many recipes to choose from – I couldn’t decide which to try. I finally settled on a cilantro hummus recipe because little Miss T was going through a “eat hummus at every meal of the day” phase.
I was a little hesitant – I wondered if this recipe would work because it was GREEN and T can be a little funny about GREEN colored food sometimes.
The moment of truth…
I didn’t get a picture of her actually EATING this delicious hummus, but she did and she LOVED it! I was so pleased. I will definitely be making this again with different Gourmet Gardens herbs (perhaps garlic and red pepper?). When I make this again, I’ll definitely add SALT – that was the one area it was lacking.
