I find I get tired of hummus very quickly, and so am often looking for an alternative. Today I had a tin of butter beans, several rapidly ripening avocados and thought that combining the two would be rather nice to use in place of hummus, or margarine, or as a dip or as anything else really.
1 tin butter beans in water, drained and rinsed
1 medium sized avocado
1 tablespoon olive oil
juice of one lemon
1 teaspoon paprika (I used sweet as this is all I have, but hot might be nicer)
splash of water to allow for smooth blending
salt and pepper to taste
fresh parsley chopped on top.
This was quite okay. Very mild and creamy tasting. A recipe for tweaking.
