Chef Suggestions
Substitute 1 clove raw garlic, minced, or 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder for the roasted garlic.

Replace navy beans with garbanzo beans for a ranch hummus!

Soak and cook dried beans to replace canned.

Sprinkle dip with paprika before serving.

Note: Tahini is a paste made from sesame seeds and packed with nutrients, but it can add a slightly bitter taste. Omit tahini if you wish.
