Before I moved to New York, I hadn’t heard of an everything bagel. But I’ve since learned to enjoy the delicious combination of seasonings that makes everything bagels so delicious.
But bagels are really heavy, and I don’t eat them too often. So when I came across this dip recipe topped with the same delicious seasonings, I was totally on board to dive in!
This white bean hummus is silky smooth, and it has plenty of delicious seasonings on top. Roasted garlic adds an extra layer of sweet, rich flavor.
The only thing I changed when I made this recipe was to not add enough sesame oil because I ran out. It was still really tasty, and I imagine it would be even better with the full amount.
Everything White Bean Hummus
How Sweet It Is
YIELD: SERVES 2-4 AS A GENEROUS APPETIZER TOTAL TIME: 15 MINUTES
3 cups cooked cannellini/great northern beans (or 2 cans, drained and rinsed)
6 tablespoons olive oil + more for drizzling
2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
1 whole head of roasted garlic
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons dried minced onion
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1 tablespoon dried minced garlic
1 teaspoon flaked sea salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
crackers for serving
In a small bowl, combine dried onion, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, garlic, sea salt and black pepper. Toss to mix.
Add beans and roasted garlic to a food processor and pulse and blend until combined the beans begin to puree, about 2-3 minutes. With the processor still going, stream in olive oil and sesame oil, blending continuously for a few minutes (and scraping down the sides if needed) until as smooth as desired. Add salt and taste, adding more if desired but remember – all of the seasoning will go on top.
Add hummus to a bowl and drizzle with extra olive oil. Pour everything seasoning overtop and serve immediately.
P.S. it is essential that you like the “everything” seasoning to enjoy this!
