White Bean Hummus with Roasted Garlic
White Bean Hummus with Roasted Garlic

This is a nice twist on hummus that everyone finds intriguing. We pair this with roasted vegetables in a sprouted wheat wrap sandwich. It is also a wonderful dip for crudité or healthy crackers.

4 cups cooked organic navy beans

6 large garlic cloves roasted (see Notes)

½ cup tahini

1/3 cup lemon juice

1 tablespoon Bragg liquid aminos

1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary

dash of cayenne pepper

1. Process all of the ingredients in a food processor. Adjust the seasonings to taste. Serve cold.

 Makes: about 5 cups

Notes: To roast garlic cloves (which mellows their flavor), preheat the oven to 350°F. Place the peeled cloves onto a baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes. Turn the cloves over and continue to roast for another 20 minutes, or until golden brown and soft.
