A traditional hummus recipe is made using chickpeas and ground sesame seeds (tahini).
Butter bean hummus can be a delicious variation of the traditional hummus recipe.
Instead of tahini I use cashew nut butter to give a creamy and nutty flavour to this delectable hummus recipe.
My recipe is really easy and quick to make.
