White Bean Homemade Hummus
This homemade hummus using Cannellini beans instead of the chickpeas is a lovely alternative that makes for a more creamy and smooth texture. With lemon juice as the natural preservative, it will last for 7-10 days in the fridge. And using all natural ingredients, it's gluten and dairy free too!

- Hummus is a fantastic snack which can be made as a variety of different flavours. You could roast some carrots, pumpkin or kumara and once cool, add those to the base. If you've got an abundance of herbs, like coriander or basil, you could add those. Or you could add sundried tomatoes or olives for an Italian flavour. The world is your oyster with what you can make, but having a delicious creamy base recipe is the beginning of great hummus's to come!
