Maple Lime Hummus is spicy, a little sweet, and silky smooth. It’s so easy to make and can be done in just a few minutes. The super creamy texture is thanks to the butter beans and navy beans combo. That’s two cans of beans so this recipe makes a decent-sized batch. Don’t worry, it won’t last long.
Apparently, when I’m old, the thing I’m going to be known for is making hummus … just like my grandmother was known for making biscuits and gravy. Every time my grandson, Ledger, visits he requests hummus. This is a win-win situation. I get to make Ledger happy and we all get to eat hummus.
I like to try different variations and this time I had butter beans leftover from making this Vegan Cream Cheese with them (yes, it’s delicious).
We ended up using a can of butter beans and a can of navy beans and the combo was delicious. Silky smooth.
