  • 15 ounce can white/cannellini beans
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Extra virgin olive oil for serving
  • Fresh parsley for serving


  • Place the white beans in a food processor. Blend them alone until they become powder-like, scraping down the sides as needed.
  • Add the lemon juice, tahini, garlic cloves and salt and 2-3 ice cubes, and blend for about 2-3 minutes until smooth. Taste and adjust as needed by adding more lemon juice or salt.
  • Spoon the hummus onto a plate or bowl, and spread with the back of a spoon to create swirls. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle fresh parsley on top. Serve cold or at room temperature.



Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will last about one week in the fridge.
Sourcing: You can find the tahini at Middle Eastern markets, natural-food stores or even in large supermarkets, often located with other Middle Eastern ingredients.
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However if you are allergic to tahini, I would recommend using olive oil in its place. If you have other questions about any substitutions, please feel free to ask.
Equipment: I use the Kitchen Aid food processor to make the hummus. It is super efficient and blends at an incredible speed to create a smooth and creamy consistency.
