Make delicious creamy hummus at home with white beans
Hummus was one of the first recipes I ever made when I first started sharing recipes online. It is actually so easy to make hummus at home and it is usually much better than store bought!
Normally I make my hummus with chickpeas, but in order to get an extra creamy chickpea hummus you need to remove the skins. But, if you use cannellini beans or white beans, you can make an extremely creamy hummus without removing the skins of the beans!

I like to serve this homemade white bean hummus as a dip. Usually I garnish the dip with extra virgin olive oil, lemon zest, fresh parsley, and toasted sesame seeds.
