White bean hummus

I made this delicious white bean hummus last night and it's great as a spread for sandwiches or as hummus with crackers. 

White Bean Hummus
1 can cannelini beans, drained and rinsed (you can also use beans that you have soaked o/n and cooked - cheaper)
handful of fresh basil leaves
1 clove of garlic (minced)
1 teaspoon of cumin powder
juice of 1/2 lemon

Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth! Store in refrigerator.

Can be used as an alternative to traditional chickpea hummus or as a plant friendly spread for sandwiches (beats mayo hands down). 

Used this on my sandwich: 

Dave's killer bread (21 grain) toasted
Slather on the guilt free white bean hummus
layer on sliced tomatoes right off the garden vine
Add sliced avocado

Eat and say "yummmmm"...
