Hummus - Mix made with Flax Oil & White Beans

Hummus - Mix made with Flax Oil & White Beans

Introduction

Hummus is a fantastic dip for raw vegetables, sliced apples, crackers, toast, crisp bread, flatbread or tortillas. It is also a great topping for rice, cooked vegetables and for pita or pocket sandwich filling.

This low fat hummus starts with a 9-serving box of Fantastic World Foods Original Hummus. I added a can of Luck's Fat Free Great Northern beans.

The listed serving size is 1/4 cup. I enjoy eating a half cup and using it as an entree.

Ingredients

    Hummus mix - Fantastic World Foods Original Hummus, 1 box = 9 servings =18 tbsp
    Water, warm, 1 1/2 cups
    Luck's Fat Free Great Northern Beans, 1 1/2 cups = 393 g = 1 can
    Barlean's Flax Oil, 2 tbsp
    Lemon Juice, yield from 1 large lemon
    Kirkland Organic No-Salt Seasoning or Mrs. Dash Original Blend, 2 tsp
    Black Pepper, fresh ground, 4 dashes
    Salsa Verde, 1 tbsp

Directions

1. Rinse the the great northern, or small white, beans, under hot water and put them to soak in hot water.
2. Cut a large lemon into wedges. Juice the wedges into a small cup.
3. Put 1 1/2 cups warm water in your blender.
4. Add the hummus mix and blend for several seconds.
5. Add the lemon juice, flax oil and green salsa and blend for a couple seconds.
6. Grind several dashes of black pepper directly into the blender.
7. Add no-salt seasoning to the mix and blend for a couple seconds.
8. Drain the beans and rinse once more under hot water.
9. Put in white beans 1 heaping serving spoon at a time. Using a high blender speed after adding each scoop of beans. In most blenders, they will combine more easily than if the whole can of beans is added at once.
10. Hummus can be eaten immediately or chilled for 1/2 to 1 hour before serving.

Recipe makes 16# 1/4-cup servings.

Lowering salt/sodium content of the canned beans:
Opening the can of beans before using the blender, rinse the beans under hot water. Soak them for 15-30 minutes. Rinse them under hot water again before adding them to the hummus mix in the blender. This lowers the salt content, so sodium content of the beans is lower than that listed on the label, and the recipe's actual sodium content is lower than the listed nutrition info.
