White Bean Hummus aka Best Hummus Ever!


Whenever I come home from the gym in the evening, I am always starving. Tonight I had a major hummus craving. Up until a few months ago, I was buying store bought hummus. Then I realized store bought hummus is expensive and potentially full of preservatives. I also realized making your own hummus is very easy and so much more flavorful. I have been using this recipe from Oh She Glows every time I make hummus. The blog and its recipes are AMAZING! One of my favorites for sure.
I was feeling kind of creative tonight and I was inspired by a "white bean hummus" I had over the weekend. With this inspiration, I decided to swap my usual garbanzo beans with cannellini beans in the hummus recipe. The result was a smidge more creaminess, but it still tasted like my favorite hummus. I love hummus with carrots! What's your favorite way to eat hummus?


  • 1 can or 2 cups cooked cannellini beans, rinsed and drained (or garbanzos for traditional hummus)
  • 1 tsp salt, or to taste
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 7-8 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 4-8 drops of Tabasco sauce, to taste
  • Olive oil, for garnish
  • Paprika, for garnish



    Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until very smooth. Transfer to a bowl and drizzle with olive oil, then sprinkle with paprika. Will keep 5 days in the fridge. Enjoy!
