Cannellini Bean Hummus Recipe

Cannellini Bean Hummus Recipe

My version of hummus features a delightful nuttiness from tahini, a peanut butter-like paste made from ground sesame seeds. The beans pack a lot of protein so it's a healthy snack for kids. —Marina Castle Kelley, Canyon Country, California

"Very good! I needed to add a little olive oil to make it creamier. I also added in some lemon zest. My kids are eating it up!"
