Roasted Eggplant & White Bean Hummus

 

I love hummus and eat it often with vegetables and bean chips.  I’ve had regular hummus, black bean hummus, and white bean hummus.  I recently discovered Roasted Eggplant & White Bean Hummus which gives it a new spin on the classic recipe. My favorite grower at the local farmer’s market is producing a bumper eggplant crop right now and brought Roasted Eggplant & White Bean Hummus to sell.  I tried it and I was hooked.

Sometimes I make a veggie salad with a dollop of hummus on top and a side of chips.

 

 

 

 

I like it with veggies and Beanitos White Bean Chips with a Hint of Lime or Beanitos Black Bean Chips. It’s great as a snack or lunch!  For those of you who are not familiar with bean chips, here’s the lowdown.  Beanitos chips are made with whole beans, pure sunflower oil, long grain rice, natural flavor and sea salt. The white bean chips per one ounce serving has 7 grams of fat (.5 saturated fat and 0 grams trans fat), 85 mg. sodium, 180 mg. potassium, 16 grams carbs, 5 grams of fiber,  and 5 grams of complete protein.

 

Hope you enjoy it!

  1. I don’t know what it is about hummus, but I have not been a big fan. Thinking maybe, it’s the texture. I tried some pumpkin hummus in CA and it really was tasty. Maybe it’s growing on me. 🙂 Thanks for sharing your recipe with SYC.

  2. I am a huge Hummus fan too Carol and actually lean heavily on the vegetarian lifestyle. It is not because I have such an aversion to meat it is just because I am crazy over most veggies!
    Thanks for the great recipe.
