Butter Bean Hummus (Houmous)

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by -Sylvie-

This is a recipe from Lesley Waters 'Simple Ways to Success - Healthy' cookbook. This is a really creamy houmous and the butter beans add extra protein. I use Bekah's Homemade Tahini #73859 to make it and sometimes I add a little sambal oelek for some extra spicyness. It great served with a variety of fresh vegetables and pita crisps for dipping. Or you could try one of my favourites: a fresh bagel with houmous, rocket and roasted aubergine. Yum!

a really creamy, light, delicately flavoured houmous - totally perfect & so easy to make. I think it's great as is, but my boyfriend decided to pep it up with a few drops of tabasco sauce. I used 6 tablespoons of water because I like quite a loose houmous.
