Roasted Red Pepper Three Bean Hummus with Olive Oil Butter & Sea Salt

 

A few weeks ago I was given a oppurtunity to review the new  LAND O LAKES® Olive oil and sea salt butter. It was buttery delicious !  Creamy, easy to cook with and healthy too. I fell in love with it and wanted to create another  healthy buttery recipe. I’ve always wanted to make 3 bean hummus, so decided to substitute the olive oil for the butter and it came out creamy and delish. My best hummus yet!!! What is the advantage of making a three bean hummus? Each bean has a different amino acid and combining beans makes a complete protein. To read more on combining proteins, read my post on ‘Pros and Cons of being Vegan ”  The roasted red peppers adds color and zest! You can either roast red peppers or buy the bottled version. I made a huge batch since I have company  on Saturday, but am not quite sure the hummus will make it through to the weekend. Well, I will just have to whip up a new batch if it is demolished before that. I added some raw garlic and lemon to add some extra pizzaz ! High fiber, heart healthy and super creamy, what’s not to love about this hummus ?
