Ingredients for gluten free green goddess hummus
Most of these ingredients can be found at your local grocery store, but you’ll find great deals on canned beans, tahini, and more at my favorite online retailer–Thrive Market.
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.
- Salt. The amount you use in this recipe will

How to make green hummus (step-by-step)
To begin making your own gluten free green goddess hummus, drain and rinse your canned beans, measuring the amount needed for the recipe.
Finely chop the green onions, including both white and green portions.

Now you’re ready to blend!
In a food processor, combine the white beans, garlic, chopped green onions, cilantro, and parsley.
Blend on low until everything is finely chopped and mixed.
Then you add the olive oil, tahini, a pinch of salt, and the lemon juice.
Blend on high until smooth and creamy.
At this point, taste your green hummus and add more salt and lemon juice as needed.
Cover and allow to sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving for the flavors to blend properly.
