Hummus is hands down the most loved dip in our home. I’ve been making Hummus for several years now.

Few years back when we moved to the UAE, I enjoyed the ease of being able to buy fresh delicious Hummus without having to make it myself. The readily available Arabic food and the gorgeous fresh ingredients at the local markets opened my mind and gave me an opportunity to experiment with various other Hummus flavors in my kitchen.

This Butter Beans Hummus is the outcome of my kitchen experiments and was featured in the Khalij Times in Dubai as well.


This delicious silky Hummus is much liked by all my family and friends. The Butter Beans as the name suggests have a buttery luxurious texture and taste brilliant when blended with garlic, tahina and lime Juice.

I love to serve this Butter Beans Hummus with fresh tomatoes and a sprinkle of Sumac. Pair it with some fresh baked Pita Bread and you have a delicious snack on hand.
