White Bean Hummus with Roasted Garlic
I was planning to make lemon and white bean soup today. Chunky, very lemony with addition of harissa paste and cumin - but I over boiled the beans (meh). I could still make creamy version, but it wouldn't be the same. I like chunky soups, especially eaten during a rainy day, cuddled up in blanket fron of tv.
What can you make out of slightly falling apart white beans? White bean dip of course - the European cousin of the famous hummus, with addition of delicious roasted garlic. Roasted garlic is one of my fav ingredient used in dips and dressings, these sweet caramelized cloves are very flavorful and also much easier to digest.
Roasted garlic is also delicious (and very addictive) mashed up and smeared on toast, accompanied by a glass of red wine - oh boy! I highly recommend it. But beware of consuming excess amounts of roasted garlic and wine on work nights! ;-)
