This hummus turned out tasty just the same, so get out your white beans, basil & lemon and let's go!
I really do believe the key to tasty hummus is to let it sit in the fridge overnight so the flavors can meld. Here's the stuff and how to...
1 cup dry white beans or two 14.5 oz cans of white (Navy) beans, drained
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp tahini
juice from 2 large lemons (I used Meyer's)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp lemon zest
1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
1 cup basil leaves, packed
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tbsp white balsamic vinegar
If using dry beans, boil your beans in water until done, it will probably take close to two hours. Drain and cool in the fridge.
Once beans are cooled (or if you're using canned beans, drain them) and dump into your food processor. Add all other ingredients and blend until smooth. Put the hummus in your fridge overnight and enjoy the next day!
P.S. I'm working on creating a Recipage so that all of my recipes will be easily printable, findable and usable. More on that later!
