Broadbean Hummus Dip
Hummus is always a staple in our fridge but it doesn't always have to be chickpea based. This version is made from fresh broadbeans and is a delicious alternative to your traditional dip whilst still providing you with lots of protein. It is great to have as a snack with veggies, as a spread in your wrap or simply add a dollop to your salad.
1 cup fresh or frozen broadbeans
2 tablespoons unhulled tahini
½ lemon juiced
½ cup water reserved from cooking broadbeans
1 garlic clove, minced
pinch sea salt
First prepare the broadbeans by placing them into a pot of salted boiling water. Return the water to a boil, reduce heat, cover and allow the beans to simmer for 4-5 minutes. Drain the beans, reserving ½ cup of the water to be used later.
Place the beans and all other ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.
