Cannellini Bean Hummus

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 5 min.

Makes

10 servings (1-1/4 cups)

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
