Do you love bean dips? They are so easy to make and typically are a crowd pleaser at parties. Earlier this summer I shared my Hummus recipe using Chick Peas, but Hummus is so versatile that it warrants another post and variation to the original recipe! When I’m making the ever popular dip, I usually just see what I have in the pantry and one time I had Great Northern Beans so I thought I’d give it a try. The dip was so creamy that even texture picky guests loved it! Here’s how you can make your own creamy great northern bean hummus recipe.
- 15oz can Great Northern Beans (rinsed & drained)
- ¼ Cup Sun Dried tomatoes in oil (reserve some for garnish)
- ¼ Cup Tahini
- 1-2 cloves of Garlic, minced
- Juice of 1 Lemon
- 1 Tbsps. fresh or dried Basil
- ¼ tsp Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Step 1: Pour your great norther beans in your food processor cup. Add your garlic & sun dried tomatoes.
Step 2: Add the tahini!
Step 3: Add some fresh squeezed lemon!
Step 5: Blend the ingredients in a food processor or with a hand held mixer!
Step 6: Scoop dip into a nice bowl, garnish with Sun Dried tomatoes and serve as an afternoon snack or a party app!
