White Bean Rosemary Hummus
Now this is some good hummus! I've been wanting to make a white bean hummus for some time now and it's just as easy to prepare as the homemade chickpea version. white beans are a bit bland so I was inspired to add some rosemary for a Mediterranean kick. While this dip is perfect with crudities, crackers or on its own slathered between two pieces of artisan bread, try this spread as a sandwich condiment in place of mayo or mustard. It's a sneaky way to add more fiber into your diet.

    Ingredients
    • 1 (15-ounce) can white beans*, drained (but reserve)
    • 2 cloves garlic
    • 2tablespoon tahini (sesame paste)
    • 1/2teaspoon sea salt
    • 1teaspoon dried rosemary
    • Juice of 1 lemon
    • Liquid from white beans, if needed
    • Black olives, pitted and chopped, optional topping
    Instructions
    1. Place the white beans and the following 5 ingredients (through lemon juice) in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Process until well combined. If the hummus is too chunky/dry, add a tablespoon at a time of the bean liquid down the feed tube until you get the desired consistency (for me it is slightly creamy, but not pureed to death). Taste for seasoning and add additional salt and lemon juice, if desired. Drizzle a little olive oil, spinkle some dried or fresh rosemary and top with some chopped black olives (I like Kalamata) for true Mediterranean authenticity. Serve with crudities, pita chips or pita bread.
    Recipe Notes

    * Either white kidney (cannellini) or navy beans are fine to use.

    Flavor up your hummus according to which kind you like best. For example pulse in some roasted garlic instead of fresh or try roasted red peppers, black olives or even a spinach and artichoke version. The flavor combinations are only limited by your taste buds.
