white bean + pea hummus

Hummus is a staple in my house. Traditional hummus, pumpkin hummus, beetroot hummus, black bean hummus, zucchini hummus, the list goes on. I don't share all of them with you, for fear of smothering you with hummus. But, if there is always a new one up my sleeve, maybe you'll just keep checking the blog in hummus anticipation.

The newest humminsperation: white bean + pea hummus

  • 1 cup of green peas (I used frozen peas, thawed out)
  • 1 15 oz can white beans (great northern, cannelloni, or navy beans)
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • salt to taste

Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until hummus-ey smooth! Usually a hummus requires a little bit of water, but because white beans and peas are so moist and soft, the small amount of lemon juice and olive oil is enough! This dip is a great twist on traditional hummus, it is slightly sweeter because of the peas, and a beautiful shade of springy green!
