Creamy Great Northern Bean Hummus

Great Northern Bean Hummus Recipe

Do you love bean dips?  They are so easy to make and typically are a crowd pleaser at parties. Earlier this summer I shared my Hummus recipe using Chick Peas, but Hummus is so versatile that it warrants another post and variation to the original recipe! When I’m making the ever popular dip, I usually just see what I have in the pantry and one time I had Great Northern Beans so I thought I’d give it a try. The dip was so creamy that even texture picky guests loved it!  Here’s how you can make your own creamy great northern bean hummus recipe.

Great Northern Bean Hummus



  • 15oz can Great Northern Beans (rinsed & drained)
  • ¼ Cup Sun Dried tomatoes in oil (reserve some for garnish)

  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • 1 Tbsps. fresh or dried Basil
  • ¼ tsp Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
