Hummus is by far my favorite dip because its SO versatile and packs a serious protein punch. I switched it up this time and used white cannelloni beans instead of chickpeas and have to say I was pleasantly surprised with how creamy this turned out! Definitely less dense and has almost a airy fluffiness about it which was perfect for dipping.
Cannellini (white) bean’s contain an impressive 15.4g of protein along with a hefty amount of stress busting B vitamins + B12 which is essential for nerve health. Like most other beans, cannellini are low in calories but high in fiber to keep you feeling satiated for hours. They have been proven to lower blood sugar and even protect against skin cancer because of their high antioxidant content. How’s that for some plant-based goodness.
I added 1 can of sliced beets and you honestly cannot taste the beet flavor at all so for those that are not a fan, trust me that you will STILL love this hummus. Most store bought hummus is filled with nasty vegetable oils and preservatives and when your trying to snack smart, these can completely sabotage your progress. Happy snacking!
