Following our trials and tribulations as we attempt to remove all grains, many starchy vegetables and most sugars from our diet while maintaining our love of good food! We strive to make all of our recipes GAPS and/or SCD compliant. Note: We didn't know about "Grain-Free Gourmet" when we chose our name. We are not affiliated with those good folks.

Lima Bean Hummus
2 cups soaked and cooked lima beans
3 cloves of garlic
1 tsp salt (or more to taste)
3 T lemon juice
3 T olive oil (or more depending on how "wet" your beans are and the texture of hummus that you like)
Put all ingredients in the blender or food processor and blend to desired consistency. Taste and adjust flavors. You will undoubtedly find your own blend of ingredients that you like best.
For variation, try adding olives, anchovies, roasted garlic, roasted peppers, dried tomato, or whatever herbs and spices you like. If you find an especially tasty variation, please post it in the comments for us all to enjoy!
If you serve the hummus with sliced veggies for dipping it makes a nice side dish or even a light meal.
