Butter Bean Hummus

Butter Bean Hummus created by gailanng

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

directions

  • Soak the beans overnight in plenty of water.
  • Drain and discard the soaking water.
  • Put the beans in a pot and cover with cold fresh water.
  • Bring to a boil and then simmer, partially covered, until they are very tender but not mushy.
  • Remove from heat and drain, reserving the cooking liquid.
  • Put the beans in a food processor fitted with a steal blade.
  • Add garlic, tahini, salt, pepper, and cayenne.
  • Puree this mixture, and with the motor running, slowly pour in the olive oil and lemon juice.
  • 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.
  • Taste for seasoning and add more salt and cayenne if desired.
