Butter Bean Hummus
Beans and pulses can be a challenge when you live with endometriosis and following a plant-based diet. They are full of proteins of goodness, but some of us can really struggle to digest them. Personally, I love chickpeas, but if I eat them, I end up with a painful and bloated stomach. Yet, because hummus is still one of my favorite snacks, this butter bean version of the traditional Middle-Eastern dish is a winner. All you need is a blender, and you are free to eat it however you like. It works great as a dip with veggies, nachos or chips, or as a sandwich spread. This is also a garlic-free version and it can serve two people. But if you eat it all by yourself I won’t judge you.

Directions for butter bean hummus

- Cut some vegetables such as carrots or celery into shapes suitable for dipping.
- Serve the hummus in your favorite bowl, pour a little olive oil over the hummus, sprinkle some paprika, and it's ready!
