I love using canned cannellini beans instead of chickpeas to make a tasty hummus-like dip. I skip the tahini though because the pureed cannellini beans have such a nice texture without it. Then some toasted sesame oil brings a delicious nutty flavor. It’s so good in there!


  • 2 (15 oz.) cans reduced-sodium cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. toasted sesame oil (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin (optional)


  1. Put all ingredients into a food processor. Process until smooth.
  2. Scrape sides and process for another minute to make it extra smooth.
