Chickpea and Cannellini Hummus

White Bean Hummus |

Hummus – is there a vegan out there that doesn’t love hummus? It’s the ultimate snack. Dip bread into it. Dip crispy raw veggies into it. Spread it on a sandwich.
Put it out for a gathering. Bring it to the office as part of your lunch. Have it for a lazy dinner.

Keeping hummus around is a must for me – and this chickpea and cannellini hummus is SO easy and tasty. Whip it together in a couple of minutes and thank me later…

Chickpea and Cannellini Hummus
Recipe type: snack
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6 servings
  • 1 can drained and rinsed canned chickpeas
  • 1 can drained and rinsed canned cannellini beans
  • 6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted tahini
  • 4-6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1½ teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic (I buy pre-minced in a jar)
  • Pinch of ground white pepper
  • Big pinch of cumin powder
  • Small pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Garnish:
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Paprika
  • Freshly chopped parsley (if that's your thing)
  1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor. Pulse and continue processing until smooth and creamy.
  2. Taste once blended and adjust seasoning as needed. You may need to adjust any or all of the ingredients to your liking. My boyfriend prefers a stronger, savoury-spicy taste, whereas I prefer the clean, simple flavour of salt and lemon juice. Everyone is different so follow your own recipe.
  3. Pour into a serving dish and serve room temperature or chilled.
  4. Cover leftovers in an airtight container for 2-4 days in the fridge.

I love hummus as a way to eat more raw vegetables. The hummus itself is raw, and I dip raw carrots, celery, cucumber and cherry tomatoes in that tasty goodness. But hummus is also a great way to use up leftover pita, naan, crackers, pretzels, baguette, bagel chips or whatever other cheeky carbs you’re craving.
