Easy White Bean Hummus

Sunday, April 14, 2013

I’m famous for my crazy unplanned, unmeasured hummus mashups. Everyone is always impressed by the tasty bean spreads, but they are seriously the easiest thing EVER. You’ll need a food processor, but that’s about as complicated as it gets! I’m still using a food processor that my parents got as a wedding present almost 3o years ago, so don’t fret if you don’t have a fancy appliance–anything works!

You’ll need:

-1 can Cannellini beans
-1 tsp. tahini
-pinch of Sea Salt
-fresh lemon juice to taste
-sprinkle of Harissa
-Sicilian blend spices to taste
-1 clove fresh garlic, grated

hummus
Strain liquids from beans and rinse (I highly recommend getting one of this adorable little can strainers, pictured above, if you are going to make hummus a lot–it it the least messy way to strain, and it’s quick to clean!)

garlic
Grate clove of garlic using a garlic plate (these are also an amazing tool for hummus-makers) or a garlic press.

lemon
Toss ingredients into food processor, squeeze in lemon juice, and blend until smooth.

final
Ta da! People will be impressed, I swear.
