Avocado White Bean Hummus

Square

 

 

Swapping out Chickpeas with White beans and Tahini with Avocado may technically not be Hummus but I like to think of it as an updated  version of a classic recipe with a twist. Its not only delicious but healthy and packed with fiber and protein. Amazing as a spread for sandwiches or a snack.

This Hummus is super quick and easy to make. Throw everything into food processor or powerful blender and give it a whirl. It should be smooth, creamy and a gorgeous pale green.

Serve with Pita chips, crackers or veggies. Wanna make a big batch ? Store in an air tight container in fridge for a week or freeze in individual snack bags. Toss in your lunch on the go.
