"A quick and healthy bean dip recipe. Great with crackers or pita bread, or as a sandwich spread. Our two-year-old eats it with her carrots. Keeps in the fridge for about a week."

  1. Blend lemon juice and tahini together in a blender until smooth; add olive oil, garlic, cumin, and salt. Blend mixture until smooth. Add 1/4 of the kidney beans and 1/4 of the garbanzo beans at a time to the tahini mixture; blend, scraping the sides after each addition. Pour hemp seed hearts into hummus and blend until smooth.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Add a couple tablespoons of water between blending if mix seems too thick.
  • The kidney beans can be replaced with other sorts. I have also used pinto and black beans.
  • The hemp hearts have practically no effect on the taste and can be excluded without issue.
