Lemon Cilantro Hummus with Carrots for a Snack!

1/4 cup Lemon Cilantro Hummus with tons of baby carrots (way more carrots than are shown in the pic!), Water

Amy's Lemon Cilantro Hummus Recipe: 
In food processor add:  1 large clove of garlic (process this first alone before adding the other ingredients to avoid having big chunks of garlic in the final product!), 1 can of chick peas (drained), 1 tbsp of EVOO, juice from 1/2+ large Lemon, 1 handful of Cilantro, 1 tbsp Tahini, Salt & process.  If you need additional liquid to make the dip more smooth, add cold water 1 tbsp at a time until you get the desired consistency.  Let it sit for a few hours in the fridge.  Serve with whole wheat pita, whole grain crackers, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, celery, cauliflower, broccoli etc.  or on a sandwich or wrap, or even tossed with a little pasta & veggies & a little more EVOO for a cool summery pasta dish.
