Homemade pinto bean hummus, ...from dry beans!
So easy, ...beans, garlic, onion, lemon juice and EVOO in a blender/food processor. It comes out to about 5 cents a serving. The batch I made this week, I used half for hummus, half for homemade baked beans.
TIP: Process a batch of dry beans on the weekend to have for recipes throughout the week. When I have extra, I bag and freeze for soup.
I do the "quick soak" and pre cook them as directed on the bag. I'll do a batch on the weekend (cup and half dry for just me) yields about 3 cups of beans for recipes for the week. This week I made homemade baked beans and a batch of hummus.
