White bean hummus

Ingredients

Preparation method

  1. Drain the cannellini beans and place in the liquidiser or food processor with all the remaining ingredients except the oil.

  2. Blend to a smooth paste, adding a little oil at a time to make the smooth paste like consistency.

  3. Taste, adding a little more salt, garlic or lemon juice if required. This is best prepared overnight and chilled.

  4. To serve, sprinkle a little chopped parsley, optional. Drizzle with a little more olive oil over the top. I sometimes add a little garnish of chopped olives or diced tomatoes for colour.
