Today marks my first recipe contribution to Greatist. If you are new to GlowKitchen, take a few minutes to click around. Essentially, I post a step-by-step picture recipe every day with a video presentation each Tuesday. I keep the blog food-focused, with the occasional edible body treatment, and try to offer you the healthiest, easiest, and cheapest versions of any dish I post. 

Today, I share with you a Basil White Bean Hummus. I love love love hummus just like the next person, but I also like to jooj things up a bit when I want more than just the usual. White beans make this recipe lighter and less dense. It also goes down smoother!

White Beans: are one of the most concentrated food sources of the detoxifying enzyme molybdenum, are low on the glycemic index, keep cravings at bay, lower the risk of heart disease and adult-onset diabetes, slow the absorption of carbohydrates (and thus body fat), prevent premature aging with their high-antioxidant content, and are very high in magnesium and thus helpful for handling stress and preventing celiac disease and gastrointestinal problems.

Check out the ingredients and full recipe at Greatist.com. And if you like what you see, get updates and other fun tidbits by following me on Twitter and liking me on Facebook. I love receiving requests and I respond to all!
