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.

Bowl of fresh hummus dip with pita bread slices


  • 15oz can Great Northern Beans (rinsed & drained)
  • ¼ Cup Sun Dried tomatoes in oil (reserve some for garnish)
  • ¼ Cup Tahini
  • 1-2 cloves of Garlic, minced
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • 1 Tbsps. fresh or dried Basil
  • ¼ tsp Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Step 1: Pour your great norther beans in your food processor cup.  Add your garlic & sun dried tomatoes.
