Hummus Goes Green!
As you walk by the intriguing array of hummus in our refrigerated cases, this one is likely to stand out. That's because Trader Joe's Cilantro Jalapeño Hummus is a bit greener than everyday hummus. The addition of a cilantro jalapeño pesto to the top quality garbanzo beans at its base gives this Hummus a lovely hue. A closer inspection provides even more visual stimulation. Atop the Hummus we've added a generous portion of this same pesto — it looks nearly as good as it tastes.
But how does it taste? Trader Joe's Cilantro Jalapeño Hummus proves that beauty can indeed be more than skin deep. Our supplier starts with dry garbanzos and cooks them, rather than using canned beans. This imbues our Hummus with fresh flavor not found in most commercial varieties. It's spicy, but not too spicy, excellent as a dip for veggies or crackers — pair it with our Sugar Snap Peas or Organic Cut & Peeled Carrots to make a creatively colorful hors d'oeuvre. It's a sassy salsa substitute and also makes a chic spread for a veggie, turkey or roast beef sandwich. And this green hummus won't cost you too much green — we're selling each 10 ounce tub for $2.99, every day, the same price since we introduced it back in 2009.
