Yellow eye bean hummus

by - 8:39 PM


I’m on a hummus kick, this is my second version of hummus I’ve made in the past few days. Never mind the other one I like this a lot better. I think it was the turmeric and almond butter that make it so different from other hummus I’ve made.



I didn’t want over powering garlic flavor so in a little olive oil



I cooked about 3 cloves of garlic



until just barely starting to brown.



In the blender I put lemon juice, olive oil, turmeric, about 2 cups of



cooked yellow eye beans and a little bit of their juice.



And the garlic and olive oil. I pulsed the blender and used a spatula to make sure everything got blended.



Then I put in some almond butter, chopped parsley and a bit of salt and blended it up until smooth but parsley still visible as little green bits.



Next I did what you should do too, grab some flat bread and see how it is.



Serve right away or make ahead.
