Roasted Garlic and Soybean Hummus
This recipe serves:   
1 1/2 cups dried or fresh soybeans
2 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon roasted sesame tahini
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup fresh parsley
salt to taste
1 to 2 tablespoons water or vegetable broth

Cooking Instructions
1. If using dried soybeans, soak the soybeans in a large pot of water in the refrigerator overnight. Drain the soybeans and cook them at a strong simmer in fresh water for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until very tender. If using fresh soybeans, steam for 20 minutes.

2. Preheat the broiler. Broil the garlic cloves for 5 to 10 minutes, or until they just begin to brown and can be pierced easily with a fork.

3. In a food processor, combine the garlic with the cooked soybeans, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice and parsley. Blend until smooth, adding salt to taste and water or broth until the desired consistency is reached. It can be made thick to spread on bread or crackers, or thin for use as a dip for veggies or chips.
