I don’t know about you all, but here in Virginia, Richmond is flirting with spring. Whenever the weather starts to warm up and the sun comes back out, I start craving those fun and refreshing flavors of summer.

I generally try to shop in season, to help ensure a variety in my diet and to help protect the Earth. As a result, I should have restrained from purchasing limes or these fresh summer herbs at the moment; however, we all have moments of weakness! With spring just around the corner, I broke and had a great time pulling together this scrumptious and refreshing hummus spread. Try it with raw vegetables, pita chips and pretzels, or as a spread on your sandwich or savory bagel!

Happy Cooking!

Love, a rented kitchen

Ingredients:

  • 2- 16 ounce cans of white beans
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • ½ teaspoon dried cilantro leaves (or a handful of fresh leaves!)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

Directions:

  1. Combine the first three ingredients in a large food processor, and blend until the white beans are a smooth consistency. (You may need to stop and wipe the side of your food processor with a spatula!)
  2. Add the spices and herbs to the beans and process until completely mixed in.
  3. Serve with vegetables, carrots, on sandwiches, or on a savory bagel!
