Recipe Notes
  • A food processor works best for this white bean puree. 
  • Great Northern Beans or White Kidney beans can be used. Drain and rinse first. 
  • Use whatever type of tomato you have on hand. I used a handful (approximately 7) grape tomatoes. You can use a plum or roma tomato. If you do use a larger tomato, remove the seeds first. 
  • Have you seen basil paste at the store? Think tomato paste except instead of tomatoes, it's a fragrant paste made of basil and oil.  I usually find it at Aldi. 
  • If your garden has a bounty of fresh basil, use it instead.  Approximately 2/3 cup is perfect for this white kidney bean hummus recipe.
  • Fresh lemon juice or refrigerated lemon juice are both acceptable, although fresh gives a brighter flavor. 
  • This can easily fit the bill of a clean eating recipe if you are participating in a 30 Day Clean Eating program such as the Arbonne 30 Days to Healthy Living.  To find out more about that, click here. (I receive a small commission for purchases through this link.)
    • Use organic ingredients and sub regular salt for Pink Himalayan Salt to make this a clean dip.
