White Bean Hummus with Fresh Thyme and Basil

Sending
(76)
  • Prep-time:

The fresh thyme and basil add a fresh and vibrant taste to this hummus. The pureed cannellini beans are creamy white, which together with the green flecks from the fresh herbs, make this hummus pretty to look at… and scrumptious to eat!

This dip recipe is wheat-free, gluten-free, and soy-free.

From Eat, Drink & Be Vegan

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked cannellini (white kidney) beans (drained and rinsed if using canned beans)

  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2½-3 teaspoons fresh thyme, roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh basil, torn or roughly chopped

Chef’s Notes:

You can make this dip look very elegant. Try piping the dip into mini-bell peppers (cut in half), halved grape tomatoes, or endive leaves. Alternatively, spread it thinly on slices of bread with a layer of “shaved” cucumber (using a vegetable peeler to remove thin strips lengthwise off cucumber, before reaching the seedy portion). Cut crusts off bread and slice in strips or cut in shapes with cookie cutters.

Make a double batch of this hummus and store portions in the freezer. It thaws wonderfully!
