Tepary Bean Hummus with Sonoran White Pomegranate Seeds
Print Recipe
Beautiful, delicious, and nutritious, tepary beans make a great substitute for the classic chickpea in this recipe. They can be found in numerous local markets and specialty grocers. Choose the type of tepary bean that will best suit your fancy—lighter colored/white tepary beans have a more fruity and sweet flavor while the darker colored/brown beans have more of a nutty and earthy flavor profile. Additionally, the seeds of the Sonoran White pomegranate are softer and sweeter than their bright red counterparts and make a beautiful topping for this festive dip. If you have trouble tracking down the Sonoran White pomegranate, substitute with the seeds of the red variety. Hummus makes a great centerpiece for a holiday party platter.

Instructions
  1. Add tepary beans, tahini, olive oil, water, garlic, lemon juice, and spices to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse several times until mixture comes together, then blend on low speed for about a minute or two more until hummus is smooth and creamy. At this point add a bit more water and/or olive oil if needed. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
  2. Remove the bowl from the machine base and, using a rubber spatula, scoop out hummus into your favorite serving bowl, or divide among several glass jars, top with garnish, and serve.
