I’ve been experimenting a lot with beans lately. I’ve tried to use them in different kinds of meals, from my breakfast to my drinks or snacks. Their taste is so mild and therefore suitable for both savory and sweet dishes and the texture can be adapted to be either crunchy or very creamy, depending on their cooking time.
For this hummus I cooked them a long time, to obtain a very soft texture and then I added some tahini and olive oil for a richer taste.

You can enjoy the hummus as a bread spread or as a dipping sauce for your veggies. Present with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of dried herbs.
