  • Blender or Food Processor


  • 2 13.5 ounce cans no salt added white beans with liquid or 3 1/2 cups homemade beans, see note below
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon tellicherry pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes
  • Garnish chili flakes, parsley, and chopped cucumber to garnish


  • Start by saving the canning liquid from the chickpeas. Place the chickpeas into a strainer over a bowl to catch the canning liquid as it drains. You'll be using the liquid later in the recipe.
  • In a food processor or blender, add the chickpeas and 1/2 cup of canning liquid, garlic, tahini, paprika, lemon juice, chili flakes, salt, and pepper.  Pulse/blend on low speed until the humus begins to thicken and combine. If the hummus is too thick, add 2 tablespoons more of canning liquid until it is a creamy consistency.
  • Place hummus into a bowl or plate, top with more chili flakes, fresh chopped parsley, and cucumber to garnish. Dip away!


Canned Beans VS Homemade

While I love the convenience of canned beans, I usually cook dry beans from scratch in my Instant Pot.  I use the 8-Quart Instant Pot Ultra, which is larger than standard models (which are only 6 quart) so I have extra room to meal prep and batch cook more meals for the week. The Instant Pot works wonders for cooking dried beans fast, no soaking required! While canned beans are super convenient, they are often loaded with sodium.  If you buy canned beans, I always recommend using a no salt added variety so you can control the amount of salt in your dish. Next time you reach for the canned beans, think about https://amzn.to/3t9a5Oa! Homemade beans are incredibly cost efficient, and you can add seasonings and spices to the beans while they cook for extra flavor.
