    Chef Dudo's Note:

    Like Zaar needs another hummus recipe.......But-this is different cause it's made from butterbeans (Lima beans) instead of the usual chickpeas. Found the recipe on the net a while back and have made it many times since then. Thought I'd share it.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Soak the beans overnight in plenty of water.
    2. 2
      Drain and discard the soaking water.
    3. 3
      Put the beans in a pot and cover with cold fresh water.
    4. 4
      Bring to a boil and then simmer, partially covered, until they are very tender but not mushy.
    5. 5
      Remove from heat and drain, reserving the cooking liquid.
    6. 6
      Put the beans in a food processor fitted with a steal blade.
    7. 7
      Add garlic, tahini, salt, pepper, and cayenne.
    8. 8
      Puree this mixture, and with the motor running, slowly pour in the olive oil and lemon juice.
    9. 9
      If the puree is too thick, pour in a little of the reserved cooking liquid until the puree is silky smooth, I use up about one cup of the cooking liquid.
    10. 10
      Taste for seasoning and add more salt and cayenne if desired.
