If you grow up in Israel, you are expected to like hummus. It’s every kid’s first choice for a sandwich spread (well, maybe except chocolate spread). Hummus is served at every birthday party and is included in other popular dishes like falafel, shawarma, and sabich.
The thing is, I never liked it as a child. I couldn’t even bear the smell or look of it. Kids always looked at me funny when I said I had never even tried eating hummus.
But then I met Guy, and soon learned that his favorite thing to eat is hummus. Over the years he kept trying to convince me that I should give it a chance.
It was only when we started making homemade hummus using our Vitamix that I agreed to give the greyish paste a second chance and found love (not at first sight).
Since I realize I am a bit behind with my new love, I decided to try and mix it up using different legumes. In this recipe I used red beans, but you can use the traditional chickpeas or any other legumes you have laying around in your kitchen.
