Mixed Bean Hummus
1 can mixed beans (540mL) - drain & reserve liquid
3 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon curry
1/2 teaspoon sugar
dash of cumin
dash of cayenne
sea salt to taste
I hand mash the beans because I enjoy the texture. If you attempt to do this as well, you'll likely not need to add any liquid. And be sure to finely chop the garlic before adding. Also, be prepared for the skin of the kidney beans to keep your tongue busy as it likes to cling!
Throw everything together, and mash, process or blend to the desired consistency. Add reserved liquid from the beans if its too dry.
If you're not a fan of the mixed beans, this of course can be prepared with strictly garbanzo beans.
