I love Hummus, a lot. So do the boys… my oldest will eat it with a spoon. But my husband doesn’t. So naturally, I have been on a little mission to make him like hummus. First, I had to figure out what he didn’t like about it. After a lot of talk and tasting, he said it must be the texture because he doesn’t like the texture of chickpeas. Oddly enough I don’t really like chickpeas either. Then my mom mentioned she has been making White Bean Hummus for a while. BINGO people!
I thought I would even add an avocado for more creaminess. It turned out to be a mix of hummus, bean dip and guacamole all rolled into a rich, smooth concoction that had everyone eating it with spoons :) The Husband Verdict… he ate a good serving of it! That’s Hummus Progress. Also please someone tell me how to take a good picture of hummus- it’s not a photogenic food… I promise it’s better than it looks.
White Bean and Avocado Hummus: (kind of based on this recipe)
chopped green onions ( I used 2)
juice of 2 lemons ( I like it very lemony)
2 tablespoons tahini
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon oregano
1 can cannellini beans- rinsed and drained
1 garlic clove, peeled
a little olive oil
Has anyone else tried any good Hummus recipes or “spin-offs” I should know about? That tahini looks like it will last me a while.
