Harissa White Bean Hummus
Thank you Blue Diamond Nut Thins for sponsoring this post. #tastemaker
Harissa White Bean Hummus. This simple hummus recipe is made with white beans, tahini paste, lemon juice and harissa. It can be made in a blender or food processor. Vegan friendly.
A couple of months ago I made my first batch of white bean hummus. Cilantro Lime White Bean Hummus was born on a warm Saturday afternoon in March. It stole my heart at first bite and I knew I would eventually make another white bean hummus that would equally steal my heart. Harissa White Bean Hummus came into existence on a hot Sunday afternoon in late May. It quickly stole my heart as well as a friend of mine’s heart. My friend loved it so much that I gave in and shared the recipe with her before I even posted it on my blog. She made a batch over the weekend. She’s hooked.
I also got my friend hooked on Blue Diamond Nut Thins. I’ve been snacking on the Nut Thin gluten free crackers for ages and was grateful to receive two free boxes from Blue Diamond. I took one box into work. My friend tried them. She loved them. She bought a box a couple days later. She bought it so she could dip them in the harissa white bean hummus, just like I did.
What I love about this hummus recipe is that it can be made in a blender. My 3.5 cup food processor doesn’t have the capacity to make a batch of hummus and I haven’t splurged on a 7+ cup food processor yet. If you own a larger food processor, you may certainly make this hummus in it rather than making it in a blender.
I used a can of reduced sodium northern beans and a jar of all natural (no weird ingredients, either) harissa that I found at Fresh Market in this recipe. If using dry beans, you’ll need about 2 cups cooked for this recipe. If you’re a pro at making homemade harissa, you may use yours instead of the type I used.

Looks like an interesting use for harissa, which seem to be all the rage these days. Thanks for sharing!
It seems like ages since I first heard about Harissa. Then I finally tried it. Now I know what all the rage is about!
I love any kind of hummus. I happen to have a bottle of harissa. Need to whip this up for a snack today.
I can vouch – it can be easily whipped together before heading out the door in the morning. I needed dip for carrots I was taking to work. I made this hummus again!
What a fantastic idea to add harissa to hummus! Love this so much Julie!
What a fun twist on hummus! Love.
Glad you love it too, Nicole!
I love everything about this recipe! I’m a huge harissa fan, and while I’ve never made white bean hummus, it sounds absolutely delicious!
I think you would love white bean hummus, Aida!
This is such a fun twist on hummus! We are big fans of any kind of hummus I love the harrissa in here! This sounds absolutely amazing, Julie!
Thanks so much, Kelly!
I love dips and appetizers for snacking and think you can have them any time of the day. They’re just so snackable and easy – so this Harissa White Bean Hummus sounds deliciously perfect for an afternoon snack!
It is great for an afternoon snack! I’ve been taking it to work to accompany carrots. Yum!
This looks wonderful! I love Hummus! One of my favorite appetizers!
I am always on the lookout for new hummus recipes, this one looks like a winner! Can’t wait to try it this summer, bet it would be great in a veggie wrap as well!
OH YES! It would be perfect in a veggie wrap. Veggie wrap is totally happening this weekend!
Julie, that harissa addition in your white bean dip is SUCH a great idea! It looks so nice and creamy!
Thanks so much, Lisa!
