About 3 weeks ago I purchased a can of fava beans and chick peas – I figured I would make a bean salad or something. Then, I though, why not hummus?! So, here we go – fava bean hummus.

This recipe is easy and worth trying out! It’s good for a quick snack or a light lunch and it’s homemade.

  • 1 1/4 cups of chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup of water
  • 1 540 ml can of fava beans and chickpeas
  • tablespoon of chopped garlic
  • teaspoon of ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne
  • 1/4 cup of omega oil
  • salt
  • 1/2-2/3 a cup of cooking liquid

Drain the beans and keep some of the cooking liquid. Put the drained beans in your Vitamix and blend. Add in the oil, salt, cumin, and cayenne. Blend. Add in some of the cooking liquid – just a bit at a time – until the desired texture is reached. Taste. It’s good, isn’t it?
