In Argentina, we don't really eat beans as a main part of our meals like many other South American cultures; however, I recall growing up eating lentils, garbanzos, and many types of beans cooked in different ways. And I love them. I created this recipe for a variety of reasons: It's accessible to many people and affordable during COVID-19, it's very simple to make (even if you just have a fork), it's a pure plant-based protein, it's flavorful, it can be re-created with any other beans in the pantry, AND the ingredients have a good shelf life so they won't contribute to food waste.
Now, let's get cooking!
~ HUMMUS CON ADOBO ~
- 1 can of cannellini beans (15 oz) (alt: soaked then cooked!)
- 1 tsp of Loisa Organic Adobo
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1 Tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tsp of minced garlic
- In an immersion blender or food processor, place beans, Loisa Organic Adobo, extra virgin olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, and minced garlic.
- Blend until smooth and creamy. Add water for a thinner consistency. Serve drizzled with a few drops of extra virgin olive oil and accompanied by vegetables, mariquitas plantain chips, or pita chips.
