White Bean Red Pepper Hummus
Making your own hummus is super easy, and beans contain a lot of protein. This makes a great snack, or you can add it on top of chicken or a salad. Traditional hummus is made with chickpeas which you can find cans, I used white beans, which also come in a can. You can add tahini, which is like a sesame nut butter, you would find that in the aisle next to the other nut butters. If you want, you can add in roasted red peppers ( I got these jarred), or you can add in sun dried tomatoes. Mix it up with whatever you like!
Tip: If the hummus comes out too thick, add a little more water until smooth.
Healthy tip: Beans contain a good amount of protein and fiber. Fiber is good for lowering cholesterol, and for healthy digestion.
