Easy White Bean Dip

Yep...Another easy recipe.  My husband loves dip and just about anything with sauce.  It's actually pretty funny.  When I give him a choice of what he wants to eat I'll point out which one has "sauce" and that's the one he'll normally choose.

Easy White Bean Dip
1 can of canellini beans  (or homemade)
(rinse them well and pat dry before using)
1 small garlic clove (you can use a little more or a little less depending on your preference)
The juice from about half a lemon
A little less than 1/4 quarter cup extra virgin olive oil
Kosher salt to taste

Add the first three ingredients into a food processor and puree. With motor running, pour in olive oil and puree until the dip is smooth (you can use more lemon juice and less olive oil if that's your thing). Add a pinch or two of salt and adjust for taste. 

Optional additions: chopped chives, Roasted Eggplant, fresh dill!
This recipe is Vegetarian AND Vegan!

This "Dip" can also be used as a spread for a sandwich or pita.  I might try this with my Red Bean Patties.


  1. What a great recipe. So easy and perfect for the up coming football season. Stopping by from the Shady Porch for a visit.

  2. This looks delicious. I beans. I have a few great black bean dips and salsa but not too many white bean recipes.

  3. I'm a new follower! Love your idea. Carrie,

  4. Outside of hummus I never thought about using beans to make a dip. I love this, but don't have a food processor. I used my blender once to make hummus, had to buy a new one.

  5. Great recipe. My husband loves to sit and dip during his football games. I will add a little cajun seasoning and he is happy as a clam. Don't you love these simple recipes that practically make themselves. Why do people think processed food is so much easier?

  6. I've got a can of beans and a bag of tortilla chips. so I'm ready to try this out this weekend. Thanks for sharing at Inspire Us Thursday on Organized 31.

  7. Great idea!! Thanks for linking up at Romance on a dime!
