  • 2 cups Romanesco Cabbage (approx. 240g.)
  • 1 cup Green peas (approx. 120g.)
  • 1x400g tin Butter beans (+ a few tbsp of the liquid)
  • 3 Garlic cloves, roasted
  • ½ Lemon juice
  • cup Walnuts (approx. 40g.)
  • 3 tbsp Extra-virgin Olive oil
  • 1 handful Basil
  • 2 pinches Salt


  • In boiling salted water, put the Romanesco florets and cook for 10 minutes. During the last 3 minutes, add the green peas.
  • Strain and cool under cold water.
  • Drain (keep the liquid) and rinse the butter beans and place them in a food processor with all the other ingredients (strained romanesco & green peas, 2 roasted garlic cloves...).
  • Whizz until creamy. Add a few tablespoons of the butter beans liquid until you got a nice texture. This hummus is a bit thicker than normal hummus.
  • Transfer into a bowl and serve!
