This garlicky homemade hummus gets its extra-creamy texture from navy beans that you cook from scratch. It’s important to sort dried beans before soaking them: Spread beans out on a kitchen towel, and remove any that are broken, shriveled, or unusually dark, as well as any rocks and debris that are in the mix.

Navy Bean Homemade Hummus - white creamy hummus in a small bowl, garnished with cilantro, with whole grain crackers on the side

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry navy beans, sorted, rinsed, and soaked overnight
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • ¼ cup finely chopped fresh cilantro

Instructions

  1. Drain beans and place in a medium saucepan. Add 2 cups water. Bring to boiling over high; boil 3 to 5 minutes. Reduce heat; simmer, partially covered, 1 hour or until beans are very tender. Remove pan from heat; let cool. Do not drain.
  2. Transfer cooled beans and the cooking liquid to a blender or food processor. Add lime juice, garlic, and pepper. Cover and blend until smooth. Season with salt; pulse to combine.
  3. Transfer hummus to a bowl. Stir in cilantro. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
