Since taking the Pulse Pledge earlier this year I’ve been having a blast in the kitchen coming up with new recipes using my favourite beans, chickpeas and lentils. The kids and I eat hummus in some form almost every day for lunch. They just devour it, scooping it up with veggies and licking it off their fingers (they’re toddlers, so it’s understandable!). The other day I even caught my daughter licking the hummus clean off her plate. I wasn’t sure if I should be glad for her love of a healthy food or horrified by her lack of table manners…isn’t that just parenting in a nutshell?!
White Bean Hummus without Tahini
I love making my own hummus at home because the flavour possibilities are endless! Hummus is typically made with chickpeas and tahini, but I’m loving white beans lately so I thought I’d change things up a bit with an Italian twist. This Garlic Parmesan White Bean Hummus has no tahini, is so easy to throw together in the food processor, and the end result is outstanding! Garlic Parmesan White Bean Hummus is sharp-tasting with a beautiful smooth texture, and it’s oh so garlicky! It’s perfect with veggies, pita bread, or your favourite crackers, and it’s so delicious I actually couldn’t stop eating it between shots while I photographed it! It’s a great way to eat those delicious and healthy pulses, and I know you’re going to love it as much as we do!
Equipment Needed to Make White Bean Hummus Recipe
You will need a food processor to make this hummus dip. I have a 7-cup food processor that works perfectly for this recipe.

Yum such a fun twist on hummus! This sounds so delicious 🙂 I love anything with parmesan!
So glad you like this recipe!
What size can of beans?
I have the same question. Can size is not specified. I used Trader Joe’s Cannellini beans, 15 oz can. I felt the garlic (which I do like) was overpowering for that size can.
The can size is 15 oz. 🙂

Thanks so much!
Wow, this was SO delicious! Definitely needed a few hours in the fridge to thicken and for the flavours to meld but once they did – a 10! Can’t stop eating it. Thanks for such a delicious, healthy, and ridiculously easy recipe.
So glad you love it as much as we do! Thanks for the positive feedback! 🙂
I have a LOT of DRY BEANS like the ones used in this and some of the other Hummus recipes. How can I use the DRY ones?
Soak and cook the beans first, and cool. Then use them in this recipe.
This was AMAZING!!!! I often spend almost $5 on hummus in the grocery store and made this for the cost of a dollar can of Great Northern beans! (I always have lemons, garlic and EVOO, so I didn’t count that). I used three cloves of garlic because my hubby has a sensitive stomach and it was perfect! I have a book that I hand write favorite and family recipes in. I wrote this in it right away! I can’t wait to try it on my grown “foodie” children! The next time I make it I’ll double the recipe tho!
Thanks Beverly, glad the recipe made it into your book!🙂
Soooo much garlic! I made this for dinner last night and I’m still breathing garlic-fire today, lol. The parmesan flavor got a bit lost under all that raw garlic, but I like the general bones of this recipe. Once the weather’s cooled off enough that I can turn the oven on again, I think I’ll try it with roasted garlic. And in the meantime, I shall enjoy roaming the streets at night secure in the knowledge that I am safe from vampires 😉
Oh, thank you for catching our error. The recipe should have called for 2 small cloves of garlic. We have updated the recipe card. We’re sorry and we hope you enjoyed your vampire free walks 😂
How long is this hummus good in the fridge?
Hi Pam! This hummus keeps well in the fridge in an airtight container for about 4 days.
I’ve just made it and… Omg it’s garlicky! I think my garlic cloves were too big hahaha! But overall it’s a keeper, I will only cut down on the garlic next time 😉
I’m so happy you enjoyed it! Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback!
I am so glad I came across this recipe! My daughter is allergic to both chickpea and sesame so regular hummus is a no go. This is delicious and she likes it! Finding good alternatives to stuff is major for us.
We’re so happy she gets to enjoy hummus! Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback.
I do not have a food processor cAn I make it with my ninja
A Ninja what? Blender? You can try, however you might need a bit more water then the recipe calls for.
