I came up with this recipe after wanting hummus, but not having chickpeas or tahini in the house. This is lemony, creamy, and really good for you! Try with pita bread or raw vegetables. Also good on a tortilla with chopped red bell pepper and olives.

10.28.20 From a consistency point of view, I still prefer chickpeas rather than Great Northern Beans, but in a pinch, this would work as a sub. The hummus texture never did get the really smooth texture you have with chickpeas, regardless of how I blended it. Tasted after mixing, and it was VERY lemony, so I did add a bit more cumin, otherwise followed the recipe. Served with a drizzle of olive oil. Thanks for sharing. Read More

Way too runny and overly lemony. Read More
