Butter bean hummus

I’ve been dreaming of making this and I finally made my dream come true. It’s amazingly smooth, creamy and delicately flavored. It puts regular hummus to shame.


  • 15 oz can butter beans, rinsed and drained
  • juice of 1/3 lemon
  • drizzle olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon tahini
  • 1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • sprinkle of cumin(optional)
  • sea salt
  • pepper

Combine all ingredients into food processor. Pulse until smooth.

Use as dip for vegetables or crackers. I really wanted to smear some on crusty bread and top it off with some freshly sliced tomatoes. That would have been amazing. Or to add fresh basil. Oh, the possibilities.
