Butter Bean Hummus (Houmous)

7 mins (prep 5, cooking 2)
13 ingredients
6-8 servings
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!
