Happy Easter


White Bean Hummus

This is so easy and so much better than the stuff you get at the store.  I always made my hummus with garbanzo beans but this is so much creamier.  I’m now in hummus heaven.  I could live on this stuff.  I found a spice blend at Penzeys that I’ve been using a lot lately.  It’s called Peri Peri, a North African red pepper blend.  I added some when processing and a little more to garnish because I like my hummus a little spicy.  You could add a little cayenne as a substitute.

  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) Great Northern Beans, drained and rinsed
  • Juice from 1 Lemon
  • 2 tablespoons Tahini
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1 Garlic Clove, pressed through a garlic press
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)

Add beans and the remaining ingredients to food processor and blend until smooth.   To serve, drizzle with a little olive oil if desired.
