One thought on “Recipe: White Bean Hummus

  1. Before I found this recipe the only hummus I had ever had/made was chickpea based hummus. I was not a fan. I took a chance making this recipe because I like cannellini beans in other recipes. This is some wonderful hummus. Much smoother than the average fare. Its almost creamy. The spices threw me for a loop but they are so subtle…it all just works. I highly recommend this and often do to people who claim to not like hummus.
