Green Hummus

This was one of those, now you see it, now you don't type dishes.  My daughters don't necessarily like hummus.  My one daughter only likes Sabra.  I'd rather make it home made but she doesn't eat it when I do.  The other daughter doesn't even like hummus.  They both loved this.  Loved it.  And my husband who just adores hummus, of course, loved this.  I think this will be made a lot around here for school lunches.  So glad to find something other than the usual...

In a processor combine arugula, cilantro, green onions, garlic, lemon juice and olive oil to the mixture. Once you get it mixed and it starts looking creamy, add in garbanzos. Blend until pureed.

It's the cilantro! Yum ;-) Thanks so much for checking in Lori, that was so kind of you. We're still on the farm but we've sold all of our land except for three acres. Both of us are unemployed but with the land sale we can take a little bit of time to find something to "do".
