Why We Like It


White beans, or cannellini beans, work perfectly when used in hummus - it makes the hummus super smooth and creamy.  After tasting an amazing white bean hummus at a favorite pizza place in Kansas City, we came up with this delicious version!  You can shorten the prep time by roasting the garlic ahead of time.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees

Roast the Garlic:

  • 1 bulb of garlic (whole bulb or head of garlic, unpeeled, with cloves still inside)
  • 1/2 Tbsp olive oil

Cut 1/4 inch off the top of the head of garlic, just far enough into the top of the bulb so you can see the cloves inside.  Place the garlic head onto a large piece of foil on a baking sheet.  Drizzle oil on top then wrap the foil around the garlic to create a foil packet.  Bake for 40 minutes then remove from the oven to cool slightly.

Make the Hummus:

  • 1 (15 oz) can cannellini beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice (juice from one lemon)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp tahini paste

Add to a food processor or blender along with the roasted garlic.  (To easily get the garlic out of the bulb, squeeze the entire bulb until the individual cloves slide out).  Blend until smooth.

Serve and Enjoy!

Serve with your favorite raw veggies or pita chips.
