Hummus is a staple at Nefeli Nine, recently I have been playing around with different variations, and I wanted to share this white bean hummus. Traditionally hummus is made with chickpeas, but I love cannellini beans and they make a great replacement as they have a very smooth and creamy consistency. This is also an incredibly easy and quick recipe!
1 Can Cannellini Beans, drained and rinsed
2 Tbsp Tahini
2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Juice of ½ Lemon
1 Clove Garlic, roasted (or ½ tsp garlic powder)
Pinch of Salt
Add a little variety to your hummus with these optional add ins:
1/4 Tsp or so of Cumin and/or Coriander
Fresh Herbs: parsley, dill or basil (I have mixed parsley in)
If roasting the garlic – place a garlic clove in foil in the oven (180 degrees) for roughly 20 mins – until it becomes soft.
Place ingredients in food processor and blend until it reaches the desired consistency
Taste for flavour and add more to your liking, if you are not a big tahini fan start with one Tbsp and add as desired.
You may need to add a tiny drop of water if it is too thick.
Serve with raw vegetables, pita bread or on top of a baked sweet potato!
