Method

Drain two cans of cannellini, reserving some liquid. Combine all other ingredients in a food processor or blender and pulse until smooth. Add small amounts of reserved liquid from beans to reach desired consistency. Taste for additional salt.

Babyfood Option:

Hummus is a nice flavorful smooth food for babies to try. Talk to your doctor in case there is a family history of food allergies, especially sesame or chickpeas. Babies many enjoy dipping a large chunk of veggie into the hummus and licking it off. Always supervise that baby does not bite off a chunk of the veggie and is just getting the flavor from licking. Avoid too much raw garlic for babies as this can taste a bit "spicy."
