White Bean Hummus

This White Bean Hummus is creamy, tasty, and simple to make. It makes a wonderful snack or appetizer and can be made in 10 minutes or less. Pair it with fresh vegetables, crackers or pita bread.

I am a huge fan of hummus.  Anytime we go out to eat and see hummus on the menu I know I need to try it.  I love that there are so many different types of hummus now including traditional, roasted garlic, pine nut, roasted red pepper and bean hummus.  Not to mention that there are also endless amounts of different types of ingredients to dip your tasty hummus in. Some of my favorites include, veggies, bread, and crackers.  

Although, I love the traditional hummus made from chickpeas (garbanzo beans) I decided to try to switch up my hummus recipe and make it from white beans instead. The White Bean Hummus recipe is very similar to how you normally would make the traditional hummus but by substituting the main ingredient, chickpeas with white beans.  

When I say this recipe is simple and easy to make, I am not kidding. I used my white beans from a can. But  before using them I drained and rinsed the beans to get any excess can juice that might have been on the beans. In a food processor or high powered blender combine the white beans, tahini, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt, and olive oil. Blend all ingredients together and scrap the hummus into a bowl. I like to garnish my humus with a drizzle of olive oil and top pit off with a sprinkle of salt, garlic powder and chopped green onions.

Hummus Garnishes:

  • Fresh Herbs
  • Roasted Garlic
  • Cumin Powder
  • Paprika Powder
  • White Beans

If you make this recipe I would love if you would snap a photo of your food and share it with me on instagram @itsallgoodvegan.com. I can’t wait to see how you like it.
