White bean hummus


White bean hummus is an alternatives to the classic chickpea hummus. It is slightly more delicate and creamy thanks to the consistency of the beans and is no less tasty than the original one. Rich in vegetable protein and healthy. Perfect with bruschetta, pita bread or crackers. On my website you can find an excellent recipe for homemade cheese crackers.
