Lemony White Bean Dill Hummus
This Lemony White Bean Dill Hummus is one of my favourite recipes to keep in the fridge as a satisfying and healthy appetizer, snack or dip!
This homemade hummus is so flavourful and versatile! During weekly meal preps, hummus is a good item to add to the list. You can make a batch and store in the fridge as a nutritious dip to have on hand. This Hummus is made of a few basic, healthy ingredients including white beans, extra virgin olive oil, lemon, dill and garlic!
White Bean Hummus: Health Benefits
White kidney beans also known as cannellini beans are a great vegetarian source of protein and high in fiber, both helping with feelings of satiety! Protein is important for building and repairing body tissues and fibre promotes a healthy gut.
The high soluble fibre content of fibre also helps lower cholesterol and manage sugar levels. Hummus is made by blending the beans with olive oil, which are considered healthy monosaturated fats , providing anti-oxidant properties & can fight aganist infammation.
White Bean Hummus: Serving and Storage Tips
This Lemon Garlic Dill Hummus can be served with some pita or favourite crackers.
Another great idea is to serve it as a nutritious, balanced snack with some raw vegetables. You can even have as part of a meal, added to sandwiches as a spread. My favourite way to have this spread is as a hummus avocado sandwich! Lastly, hummus can be served with roasted vegetables as part of a healthy nourishing bowl for lunch or dinner.
For storage, place hummus in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 4 days!
