    Yes, you can certainly use canned beans. Follow the suggested amount in the recipe to get started (2 cups) - if you want to make a larger batch, add more beans in proportion to the other ingredients. ~Ken

    What is roasted tahini as opposed to regular tahini?

    Hi Brian, White beans include Navy beans, Great Northern, Cannellini beans, and baby Lima beans. Cannellini are the most common canned white bean, but feel to use any of the aforementioned beans for this recipe.
