Mix up your hummus repertoire with this creamy white bean hummus. Top with chervil, pine nuts, chive blossoms and za’atar.
Summer’s on its way! Which means lovely outdoor gatherings are just around the bend. BBQs, potlucks and picnics all call for an easy dish that travels well and can be made in advance. That’s where this smooth and creamy white bean hummus comes in! Flavored with za’atar, garlic, chervil, tahini and freshlemon juice, this easy gluten-free and vegan dish is anything short of boring.
You’ll never buy store-bought hummus again after digging into this smooth white bean hummus. Have you tried chervil before? A fragrant and light version of parsley often found in French cooking, chervil adds a little je ne sais quoi to this creamy dip.
Low-fat, packed with fiber, folate, iron and protein (thank you white beans!), this hummus gets its extra delicious flavor from a little za’atar. Za’atar is a Middle Eastern spice that includes a blend of herbs (such as oregano, thyme and marjoram), mixed with sumac, salt and sesame seeds. It’s fragrant and a bit tangy, with a hint of sesame seed nuttiness. If you haven’t tried it before, now’s your chance!
Rolling up your sleeves to make this simple dish couldn’t be easier. Plus, you’ll get an extra pat on the back from your friends and family for bringing your A-game to your next gathering. Grab some pita or lentil chips, and fresh veggies and dig in!
