Everyone has a favorite snack. A recipe for a go-to stress reliever, mindless munching or a quick nosh for get-togethers. For me, that is a bean dip. Whether white bean, black bean or garbanzo bean, there are so many possibilities for the legume.
I have a base recipe that I use and just rotate ingredients based on what I have on hand or what sounds good. Garlic, lemon, parsley, salt and pepper, sometimes Tahini paste and beans. What more do you need to make a creamy dip for veggies and crackers? Spread in on Naan and you have a great lunch with olives and cucumbers.
Ok, I need to visit Bean Lovers Anonymous.
Hi…My name is Heather…and I love bean dips…
There I said it ????
My recipe is an adaptation of a Giada recipe. I have tweaked hers, but I wanted to point out that I was inspired by her RECIPE.
White Bean Dip

3 cloves garlic
juice of 1 small lemon
1/3 plus 4 TB olive oil
1/3 C loosely packed flat leaf parsley leaves
salt and fresh pepper
Add ingredients to bowl of a food processor. Pulse until thoroughly combined. Serve with veggies, pita or pita chips.
