White Bean Hummus

This weekend is Dragoncon. It is not my scene however, it has been a yearly tradition for Jamie. She spends much of her month sewing and getting her costumes ready. They always look amazing and prove that her efforts are never in error. This year, I decided to help her. I made Jamie some food to take! I made some hummus and some of the chickin salad. I hope it is enough for her weekend.

White Bean Hummus

1 can of northern white beans
1/2 cup of lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons of tahini
5 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon of red onion (chopped)
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of oil
3/4 tablespoon of nutritional yeast
1 teaspoons of paprika
1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon of black pepper
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of cumin

In a food processor, blend the beans, garlic, onion and tahini until the beans are mostly smooth. If the mixture becomes to dry, add some of the lemon juice or oil. Once the mixture is semi smooth, add all other ingredients and blend until smooth. Taste and add more spices until it meets your taste. This recipe is very flexable and difficult to error with.

Have fun at Dragoncon Jamie!

i love making this. i have also made hummus with a combo of white beans and garbanzos, especially if i don't have enough garbanzos. still a really nice flavor!

Love hummus! Any way you can make it, I'll eat it! This sounds like a fantastic variation, and it looks so incredibly creamy.

too bad calabash isn't open weekends or that would be an option.

i've lived here 11 years and never been to dragoncon. i sort of feel like i've "been there done that" at goth clubs in san francisco. plus, i hate crowds. :-)

Rockin' hummus! I've always enjoyed seeing storm troopers walk around town like it's normal :) I'll miss it this year!
