White Bean Hummus

Submitted by: JENN3936

Introduction

Made with white beans instead of garbanzo, gives it a creamier texture. Most recipes call for a bit of olive oil and more tahini (seasame paste), but this makes an even healthier, healthy treat. Serve with fresh veggies for lunch, a snack or a side dish. I divide into portions for lunch and snacks during the week Made with white beans instead of garbanzo, gives it a creamier texture.

Ingredients

    1 can (15oz) white beans (navy)
    3 tbsp tahini
    1 tbsp crushed garlic
    3 oz lemon juice
    water
    black pepper, to taste
    Paprika (optional)


Directions

drain about half the liquid from the beans and blend until smooth in a food processor. Add tahini and garlic, blend to incorporate. Add lemon juice gradually to taste. Season with pepper. If too thick add a little water, you want it to be dippable. Serve chilled in a shallow bowl with a light duisting of paprika and surround wth fresh veggies for dipping.
