White Bean Hummus

adapted from Orangette

3 garlic cloves
One 15-ounce can of white beans–drained and rinsed
2 lemons, juiced
1/2 cup tahini
1 teaspoon salt (I use Jane’s Crazy Mixed-Up Salt–because it rocks)
1 teaspoon cumin (or more or less)
ground pepper, to taste
red pepper flakes, to taste
Puree the garlic cloves. Scrap down the sides and add the remaining ingredients. Puree. Add enough water to make the hummus the desired consistency. Add additional seasonings if you wish. If you want to be like me (it’s hard for some to resist), sweep up the hummus that remains in the food processor with a carrot.
