White Bean Hummus

There are few things I love more in this life than hummus. And this White Bean Hummus Recipe is no exception. It's simple and creamy, and pretty much perfect. I hope you love it too!

Servings 500 grams


  • 1 large 400 gram can white beans (kidney or cannellini)
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 3 cloves roasted garlic see recipe notes for using raw garlic
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Olive oil and Zaatar to finish


  • Drain and rinse the beans.
  • Combine all ingredients except for the water in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Adjust with water as needed.


If you’re using fresh garlic, use only one clove, and blitz that up in your food processor with the lemon before adding the other ingredients. The lemon helps to break down the garlic so you’re not biting into any big chunks.
