Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 325 degrees F. Toast bread 7 to 8 minutes.
  2. Place the beans in food processor with tahini, garlic, rosemary, the juice of 1 lemon and some salt. Turn processor on and stream in a little olive oil, process until smooth, adjust salt and transfer to a small serving bowl, garnish with toppings if you wish (on its own it is still delish), surround the hummus with toasts for spreading.
