ingredients for green goddess hummus

To make vegan green goddess hummus you’ll need:

  • Canned white beans.  I used cannellini beans, but you could use great northern or another kind of white bean.  I also use low sodium or no added salt beans so that I can better control the saltiness of the final dish.
  • Fresh cilantro.*  You don’t have to remove the leaves from the stems.
  • Fresh parsley.*  Thinner stems are okay for the parsley too. (thin stems ok)
  • Lemon juice.  Fresh is better, but pre-made bottled lemon juice is fine too.
  • Olive oil. The quality of olive oil will elevate the recipe.  Be sure to use extra virgin. It doesn’t need to be gourmet, but extra virgin olive oil is the light taste you want.
  • Green onions.
  • Garlic. Use fresh, frozen, or jarred minced.
  • Tahini.
  • Salt. The amount you use in this recipe will

*note: Be sure to use fresh herbs! Dried herbs will not yield the same desirable results as using fresh. 

Can you make oil free green goddess hummus?

Yes, you can make this recipe oil free by using water instead of olive oil.  However, it will definitely change the mouthfeel.  

The flavor will still be good, but it won’t be the same kind of creamy.

How long does homemade hummus last?
