  • 1 15-ounce can cannellini beans drained and rinsed (or navy or great northern beans)
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley


  • Mix together the beans, garlic, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, water, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, and sea salt in a food processor until smooth and creamy. You may need to stop the food processor to scrape down the sides once or twice. If the mixture is too thick, add a little more water, a teaspoon at a time. Pulse in the parsley.
  • Store any uneaten dip in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Your dip will last 3 to 5 days in the fridge.
