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.
