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.
Roasted Eggplant & White Bean Hummus
- 1 1/2 lb eggplant cut into 2" pieces
- 1 can (15 oz.) organic white beans drained and rinsed
- 1/3 cup organic olive oil plus some for drizzling
- salt and pepper
- 1/3 cup loosely packed organic fresh parsley
- 3 tbsp organic lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 cucumber cut in 1/4 inch slices
- 1 carrot trimmed, peeled and cut into small sticks'
- 1 pint organic cherry tomatoes
- 1 bag bean chips
- Heat oven to 450 F
- Place cut eggplant slices on parchment paper on cookie sheet
- Season eggplant with salt and pepper; drizzle with olive oil.
- Roast for 20 to 25 minutes until brown. Remove from oven and let cool.
- Add cooled eggplant, beans, lemon juice, parsley, and garlic to food processor.
- Pulse until smooth.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Slowly add olive oil while processing.
- Serve in a bowl with a platter of vegetables and chips using the carrot sticks, cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumber, and bean chips.
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!
