Lemon Dill White Bean Hummus

Is there anything better than raw veggies in the summer? What about having a great dip to serve with them!

This recipe is inspired by a local company, Ithaca Hummus. I had been making the same hummus flavors over and over, like roasted garlic, and roasted red pepper, which were delicious, but I was totally ready to try something new after I bought their Lemon & Dill Hummus. So fresh and different from my usuals! Plus, the dill in our garden was growing great, so I had to go for it!

I used white beans (instead of chickpeas) in this recipe, which I cooked from scratch, so I think that added another layer of flavor. I would not hesitate to use a can of Organic Great Northern Beans though, if that’s what I had on hand.  My version also has a toned-down lemon flavor, opposed to the really bright lemon flavor in the Ithaca Hummus, so feel free to increase the lemon juice if you are feeling that!

Any vegetables would go great as dippers, but I really liked the cucumbers with this. There is something so classic about cucumbers and dill together!

Really easy, too. Combine all ingredients in food processor and blend until smooth. You’ll be snacking in no time!
