Creamy white beans blended with tahini, cumin, fresh lemon juice, salt, garlic and one secret ingredient…
I have a hummus monster in the house! That’s my husband Dean. He loves hummus and it’s one of those very simple to make recipes that I can make for him so he never is without a fix!Jump to Recipe
Actually, he’s not really much of a hummus monster, but when I make it, it’s hard for him to stop eating it. Me too!
A little different twist…
Typically most hummus is made from garbanzo beans (chickpeas), but I really like the creamy texture of white beans aka cannellini beans or white kidney beans.
My secret ingredient is to add vegetarian no-chicken broth in place of water or oil. If you want to add a drizzle of olive oil on top of your completed white bean hummus, go right ahead. I’ve topped mine with some along with a few sprinkles of smoked paprika.
I’m serving the white bean hummus with my all time favorite little chips from Trader Joe’s. They’re a thin mini rice cracker called Multiseed with Tamari Soy Sauce. I love these little crackers – they’re even delicious right out of the package! But any cracker of your choice will do!
This Creamy White Bean Hummus is also great as a dip for veggies like cucumber slices or whatever veggies are you favorite for dipping. It’s also great as a sandwich spread, on toast, as a salad topping, etc.
A quick side note…
**A quick note on another subject…I think I’m getting a dog soon – fingers crossed. I’ll keep you posted – I’m kinda excited! – Sorry, just couldn’t contain it! 😉
