Vegan Cooking Level: Beginner
1 15.5 oz. can any white beans (navy, cannelloni), drained and rinsed
1 cup *edamame (soy beans, shelled) OR peas, defrosted
2 cloves garlic
2 tbsp. tahini
1/4 c. cilantro (OR parsley OR mixture)
1/2 small jalapeno seeded, sliced (OR 1/4 tsp. cayenne OR OMIT if you don't like heat)
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
Scant 3/4 cup water
*If you do not eat soy, substitute edamame with thawed frozen green peas and reduce the amount of water by 1/4 cup or a little more and process to your desired consistency!!
Whizz it up:
Add all ingredients to a high speed blender or processor and process until mixture spins freely and is smooth in texture. Taste and adjust seasonings adding more lemon juice, water, salt, spice or herbs little by little, as YOU like it.
Make one batch per week to store in the fridge and use as a condiment, just like you would mayo or cream cheese, but SO much better for you!
