- Maple Syrup: Adjust the amount of maple syrup to your liking. You might be able to get away with less, but you may find that this amount is just enough to counteract the “bean” taste that kids seem to struggle with.
- Salt: If you’re using canned beans and/or salted cashews, start with 1/8 tsp of salt. Taste the hummus when it’s done and add more as desired.
