Magical White Bean Hummus

Magical white bean hummus 🌟 it’s smooth, it has two kinds of white beans, and you don’t even need tahini!

What makes this hummus magical you ask? Well, for starters, it’s perfectly smooth and creamy. I take my hummus and its consistency VERY seriously. I don’t know if it’s the mix of chickpea and white bean, or the lack of tahini (which makes this a lot more accessible to make!) but this hummus almost tastes whipped. Add in the fact the blend of spices and lemon round out such a nice flavor, and you’ve got yourself some magical hummus!


(Makes one large bowl)

  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 can white beans (e.g. white kidney, cannelini, great northern)
  • 3 cloves garlic 
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (3 lemons)
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/8 tsp paprika + more for sprinkle
  • 1/4 cup olive oil + more for drizzle
  • Salt & pepper


  1. Blend everything together. You’re done!


You can save a few beans and a bit of oil to put on top when serving if you’d like. Will stay good in airtight container for about a week (not that mine ever lasts for more than a few days).
