Creamy homemade white bean hummus with garlic and lemon, oh it’s so delicious and creamy.
I LOVE being able to whip up food in minutes that are full of flavor and taste fantastic.
This is one of those recipes!
It’s great for dipping toasted bread into, dunking chips into, pretzels and slathering on veggie sandwiches.
Now about the garlic,
oh, how I love garlic… if you love it too, add the same amount of garlic as I do, if you want the garlic flavor less intense then useless.
I added fresh herbs to the top of the hummus, basil, and oregano. If you don’t have fresh herbs, don’t put dry herbs, the flavor won’t be the same at all.
You can dip veggies into this, I love zucchini with it.
I used an immersion blender to mix the beans smooth, a food processor will work well too.
This is one of those recipes that takes about 2 minutes to make and is perfect to enjoy for a quick lunch or snack. I love that I have all the items on hand which make this the recipe you need to print out and put in your pantry so you can make it up in minutes when company stops by or you need something to EAT that is satisfying instead of looking and looking for something to snack on. This is a real winner!
