  • In blender, add olive oil, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Blend till ingredients are combined. Add the lima beans and slowly blend until smooth. The hummus will be thick, so you’ll have to turn off the blender, stir the hummus, maybe add some additional olive oil, and then blend again. Repeat this process until the hummus is smooth.

  • Spread the hummus on toast and top with slices of tomato. Season with salt and fresh cracked black pepper if needed.
