White Bean Hummus

Hummus is so easy to make yourself at home. It also is a lot healthier than store bought hummus. I admit I usually use canned beans to make dips, it cuts down on time considerably, but I do make sure to purchase organic and bpa free cans. In this hummus I used 1 can of chickpeas and 1 of navy beans, you can really use any beans you would like here.

I made this to dip my chickpea flatbread and veggies in, a very filling, healthy and satisfying snack or light lunch.
