Easy 2-Minute Hummus Recipe


I love hummus – it’s one of my favorite dips! While you can buy the pre-packaged kind in the grocery store, this quick homemade version is super-delicious. Rather than using garbanzo beans, I actually like to use cannelini beans to get a creamier, lighter texture. It’s delicious served as a snack with crackers or veggies or as an ingredient in a wrap. If you want, you can soak and prepare your own beans, but of course that would increase the prep time for this hummus.

Easy 2-minute hummus


  • 15-ounce can of cannelini beans, drained & rinsed
  • 3T tehina
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 t fresh chopped rosemary
  • 1 T olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • water (optional)


Place the beans, tehina, garlic, rosemary, and olive oil in a food processor and process until you reach the desired texture. If you find it’s a little thick, add water a teaspoon at a time. Taste and add salt & pepper to your liking.

    What is tehina & what can I replace it with? 🙂

    • Carrie Wells, Ed.D. says:

      Tehina (also spelled tahina) is a paste made from sesame seeds. There really isn’t a replacement for it, as it has a unique flavor and texture. You should give it a try!
