A wow twist to a classic hummus

I think authentic, plain chickpeas hummus reigns supreme, but I do love to create and play with fun flavors.

A great variation of regular classic  hummus, this recipe uses red kidney beans and is as creamy and delicious.

Serve this at a party, home gathering as a snack or an appetizer. It’s surely is a party pleaser and works well as a delicious spread in a wrap or sandwich instead of mayonnaise.

We just loved it. Though I am not a Red kidney bean fan, but this hummus has bowled me over.

I have served this with vegetable crudites and baked nacho chips.

    We make a version of Rajma hummus to go with our sandwiches. It doesn’t have cumin and yogurt. These ingredients must be making it tastier and smoother. Iw ill add them to my next batch.

    1. Lata Lala

      Addition of cumin and yogurt gives it a beautiful flavour. Do try this way next time Seema.

    When Chickpea hummus is commonly made here-n-there, love to see totally a new idea with red kidney beans. Would love to try it someday.

    Beautiful pinkish colour hummus Lata, and so different. Adding cashew nuts and yogurt must be adding so much flavour and gives a creamy texture. Delicious looking red kidney hummus.

      Thank you Mayuri. Yes the creamy and nutty flavour added so much character to hummus.

    That is a wonderful twist to the traditional chickpea hummus. Wonderful idea to alternate these different beans to make hummus. Love the idea of using cashews for added creaminess.
