Everything White Bean Hummus

I came across this recipe online a couple of weeks ago and just knew I had to make it! I love all things hummus and I also love everything bagels. So the thought of combining the two sounded just perfect! I decided to make it for my mother-in-law's annual Christmas Day brunch. I usually don't bring a new recipe to a potluck, but luckily this was a huge hit! We brought bagel chips for dipping because, well, you know.

I didn't have any sesame oil and didn't feel like buying a whole bottle to only use two tablespoons, so I left that out and the flavors were still really good. I am certain I will be making this again, so I might get a bottle to see if it makes a big difference.

Everything Hummus

3 cups cooked cannellini/great northern beans (or 2 cans, drained and rinsed)
6 tablespoons olive oil + more for drizzling
2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
1 whole head of roasted garlic
1/4 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons dried minced onion
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1 tablespoon dried minced garlic
1 teaspoon flaked sea salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
crackers for serving

In a small bowl, combine dried onion, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, garlic, sea salt and black pepper. Toss to mix.

Add beans and roasted garlic to a food processor and pulse and blend until combined the beans begin to puree, about 2-3 minutes. With the processor still going, stream in olive oil and sesame oil, blending continuously for a few minutes (and scraping down the sides if needed) until as smooth as desired. Add salt and taste, adding more if desired but remember - all of the seasoning will go on top.

Add hummus to a bowl and drizzle with extra olive oil. Pour everything seasoning overtop and serve immediately.
