White Bean Hummus

For when you forgot to soak the chickpeas

This recipe was invented, not out of some desire to create a reinterpretation of a favorite condiment or some kind of hipster riff on a classic. I was sitting at my computer, getting some work done on my book blog, just about to wrap up and head into the kitchen to get to work on meal prep. And I realized, I forgot to soak chickpeas the night before. The only canned beans I had on hand were cannellini bean. White bean hummus it is!

This recipe is for an Israeli style hummus, which is a little thinner and smoother than other hummus. It’s a great snack with crackers or vegetables. I also really like it as a dressing over salads or as a dip for kebabs.
