Getting a little sick of hummus?!! Try this delicious alternative. The creamy white beans provide the perfect base for the flavorful spices and herbs – and, with a bit of lemon juice adding a note of acidity – this is one tasty treat that dresses to impress.  The Hostess Handbook suggests serving with pita chips, or using it as a base for yummy bruschetta – just add some sliced cherry tomatoes and chopped parsley for a middle-eastern spin on an Italian classic.


1 cup cannellini beans, cooked

Juice of ½ lemon

1 clove garlic, unpeeled and crushed

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp cumin

1 tbl chopped parsley, plus more for garnish

1 tbl chopped mint

2 tsp chopped cilantro

Olive oil

Salt and pepper


Blend all the ingredients together in a food processor adding olive oil as necessary.  Taste to adjust seasonings and garnish with parsley.  Serve with toasted pita chips or use as a spread for bruschetta.
