Fava Bean Hummus

Fava Bean Hummus

Fava beans are full of nutrition and are a nice addition to chickpeas.  I like to make hummus, along with various dips, for party platters.  Fava Bean Hummus is so versatile that you can even use it for a spread on sandwiches and wraps. 

INGREDIENTS

2 Cups Uncooked Fava Beans

1 Cup Cooked Chickpeas

2 Tablespoons Tahini

1/4 Cup Olive Oil

1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice

1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

3 Garlic Cloves

1 Teaspoon Dried Oregano

1 Teaspoon Dried Thyme

Olive Oil For Garnish

1/2 Teaspoon Paprika For Garnish

1 Teaspoon Chopped Fresh Mint Leaves For Garnish

In large-size bowl add fava beans and cover with cold water.  Let soak 3 to 6 hours. 

Drain fava beans and add to pot.  Cover with water and bring to a boil.  Cook 25 minutes.  Remove from heat and drain. 

Add drained fava beans, chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, kosher salt, garlic, oregano, and thyme.  Pulse 2 to 3 minutes until smooth. 

Transfer to serving bowl or tightly sealed container.  Will keep, refrigerated, for up to 1 week. 

When serving garnish with olive oil, paprika, and mint leaves.
