No tahini? Improvise with almond butter! I like the mild flavor of the white beans and the goodness of raw garlic and olive oil. The almond butter provided the glutamates needed to make this white bean “spread” a true hummus!
1 can white beans, rinsed
1 1/2 tsp almond butter
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
3-4 tbsp olive oil
In a food processor, blend together beans, almond butter, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper until mostly smooth. Leaving processor running, drizzle in olive oil until desired consistency is achieved, pausing to scrape down sides occasionally. Serve with veggies or as a spread on a sandwich.
