White Bean and Garlic Dip

White Bean and Garlic Dip - 3

This past weekend was my brother in law’s bachelor party weekend as well as my future sister in law’s bridal shower, so hubby and I were more than a little busy. There was lots of traveling, cake baking and decorating, and one of my favorite parts, catching up with hubby’s family. We did get a little rain, but for the most part it was sunny and warm outside, so it was a really great weekend for all of it. When we got back home late last night though, it was like it had suddenly turned into summer…and while I certainly won’t complain about the warmth, it’s pretty humid out there. This kind of weather calls for light food, such as salads, fresh fruits, and snacks like this white bean and garlic dip. Other than the ingredients list, I don’t even really need to include directions – it’s as easy as throwing everything into your food processor. I hope you enjoy this light summer snack!

Combine all the ingredients in your food processor.

  3. I could demolish that bowl with a bag of Stacy’s pita chips!

  4. YUM! I love cannellini beans. I use them in a roasted red pepper hummus I make, but I’ve never made them into “just” a white bean dip. This looks delicious! I love how easy it is to make too.

  6. This looks awesome! I don’t like most beans because of the texture, but once they’re blended up like this, they’re perfect. Can’t wait to try this!

  16. Love this dip

    by Alison @ Ingredients, Inc. on May 24, 2011 at 10:18 am

  17. Yes, great snack!! I was just debating over the weekend what I should serve guests who come to our house to hang out but not for a full meal. I’ve been doing crackers and pricey cheese, but that gets expensive–this is a great cheap alternative.
    So I have to say, I love your sweet recipes, but I love your savory recipes even more!

  18. I brought a white bean and garlic dip to my in-laws house for dinner once and they ate it up! I love the combination of the creamy white beans with the garlic and olive oil.

  19. Yum. That looks great. Thanks for sharing! I friended you facebook too, is that stalking? Anyways, love all the you do and make!

  20. This looks like a super dip. I think I even have all of the ingredients.

    by Miss @ Miss in the Kitchen on May 24, 2011 at 6:11 pm

  21. Wow! This dip looks fantastic! I love bean-based appetizers and finger food.

  22. I am busy scribbling down this awesome recipe! Looks like the perfect dip for me

    by Maris(In Good Taste) on May 25, 2011 at 6:11 am

  23. Years ago I found a similar recipe that includes fresh sage and used to make it often. Thanks for reminding me about this!

    by Normie on May 25, 2011 at 4:26 pm

  24. I’m with you 100% — as soon as the weather turns humid, all I want is light food. And ice cream. 😉

    This dip sounds great — I love beans in any dish – tasty and a good way to grab some extra protein!

    by Liz (Little Bitty Bakes) on May 25, 2011 at 8:55 pm

  25. oo this sounds wicked delicious!! I love garlic 🙂

    by stephchows on May 26, 2011 at 3:08 pm

  26. This was really good, but I think you could get away with adding less olive oil (and decreasing fat/calories). It was a pretty overwhelming olive oil taste in my opinion!

    by Sam on May 27, 2011 at 7:01 pm

  27. Yum I love white bean dips! Love the addition of red chili flakes for some heat!

    by Lindsey@Lindselicious on May 27, 2011 at 9:17 pm

  28. I had white bean dip at a hotel luncheon once and it was fantastic. Thanks for the recipe! 🙂

    by JulieD on May 31, 2011 at 7:49 pm

  29. Just made this tonight–FANTASTIC!! So easy, so garlicky, so good. Right now all I want to do is make and eat this constantly. Whoohoo!
