Fan of hummus? This White Beans Smoked Almonds Hummus is a stellar and delectable change from your traditional beloved chickpea dip. It’ll have you fall in love at first bite!
Man do I ever love me a good hummus! I’m a serious fan. I might even be hummus’ number one fan, I dunno… All I know is I could never really be trusted alone with a bowl of this stuff. I’d be totally capable of eating the whole thing by the spoonful!
My ultimate favorite go-to recipe would be my famous Heavenly Velvety Smooth Hummus (Yikes! I should seriously consider revisiting that post!) but sometimes, I like to change things up a bit. Like adding a handful of olives to it, for instance…
In this present case, however, I went all out! I practically threw everything out the window. The chickpeas were given the boot and were replaced by their close cousin, the super creamy cannelli white bean. I then elected to throw in a generous amount of smoked almonds, which not only confer a delightful smokey flavor to the dip, but also contribute greatly to its super velvety, silky texture. A little bit of smoked paprika and chipotle powder totally sealed the deal and made this dip into a seriously delicious, yet super healthy snack!
But don’t take my word for it… I strongly suggest that you whip up your own batch, and the sooner the better! continue reading
