Lima bean hummus is a smooth buttery dip that is perfect with crackers and bread or as a condiment on sandwiches.
One 16-ounce bag of lima beans, thawed
1/4 cup cup tahini
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 minced clove of garlic
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon cracked fresh pepper
1 teaspoon pink Himalaya salt
Place lima beans in boiling water, allow to boil 15 minutes. Drain and allow to cool.
In a blender add lima beans and all the other ingredients, slowly blend until smooth. The hummus will be thick so it is good to turn off the blender and scrape sides a few times in the blending process. If need be, add a tablespoon of olive oil each time until hummus is smooth.
Serve with pita bread, crackers or vegetables. Toppings could include olive oil, chopped parsley, or whole lima beans.
