White Bean Hummus From Stevenson Ranch Personal Trainer

Hummus is traditionally made from garbanzo beans. I stumbled upon this white bean version when I thought to myself…”Why couldn’t I use other kinds of beans for hummus?”
The result is what you’re reading right now. I’m always telling my boot camp clients to pair protein with carbs to keep their body’s burning fat. You can certainly pair hummus with veggies or toasted Ezekiel tortillas (like chips but they’re oven baked).
Some other great variations to try are black bean, lentil, and edamame.

Use this white bean hummus instead of creamy dressings or cheese in your sandwich. The hummus is filled with protein and fiber – both important for building your best body.
