Depending on your low carb plan, hummus may or may not be 'forbidden'. However, it is relatively low carb and an easy way to throw together a party appetizer everyone will enjoy. I say go for it.
Which is exactly what I did on our recent vacation. Green beans are great hummus dippers. I wouldn't have guessed they would be so tasty, but wow, they are really yummy.
People gobbled them up, thrilled with the flavor and the fact that this was a truly good-for-you delicious snack.
- 12 to 16oz of store-bought or homemade hummus
- 1 1/2 lbs Green beans (I used one package each of green and yellow beans with the stems already trimmed for me)
1.Bring a pot of water to a boil.
2.Quickly blanch beans for roughly 2 minutes. I found one minute wasn't enough, but 2 minutes had them still crispy yet not too hard.
3.Remove beans from water with tongs.
4. Arrange on a plate and serve.
