What is White Bean Hummus

White bean hummus is a creamy dip or spread. Hummus is a middle eastern dish, typically made with chickpeas. Can I use white beans instead of chickpeas? Absolutely! I actually prefer to use white beans or cannellini beans as I find it has a much smoother consistency. Cannellini beans have a subtle nutty flavor, which make them a great bean to use for homemade hummus. This homemade garlic and white bean hummus uses fresh parsley, garlic and lemon to bring out a beautiful combination of flavors.

Easy Recipe for White Bean Hummus

From start to finish, this recipe will take you only a few minutes to make. I promise you after you try this recipe, you will never buy store bought hummus again! Note: If you like your hummus a bit more on the spicy side, like me, then add 3 garlic cloves, but for a less spicy and more mild hummus use 1-2 cloves of garlic instead.


  • 1 can cannellini beans
  • 1 spring of fresh parsley
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon squeezed)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Serve with pita chips or sliced vegetables of your choice. Enjoy!
