White Bean Cilantro Lime Hummus
(slightly adapted from How Sweet It Is)
1 15-ounce can of cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
2 tbsp minced garlic (or more, if you are like me!)
1/4 cup cilantro (added more!)
1 1/2 tbsp lime juice
1/3 cup olive oil (+ more to reach desired consistency)
salt and pepper to taste
Combine beans, cilantro, juice and garlic in the food processor and blend until mixed. With the processor on, stream in olive oil until desired consistency is reached. I blended mine for a good 3-4 minutes to make it super creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with any type of chip or cracker you'd like! Would also be great on crostini or as a condiment on a sandwich!
i couldn't stop tasting this before it was served! we made a roomie dinner on St. Patrick's Day and while this isn't Irish in any way, at least it's green! the texture is very similar to chickpea hummus, and the taste is so rich and flavorful! i highly suggest this as a party dip!
