White Bean and Garlic Dip
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!
- 1 can (15 ounces) cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
- 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
Combine all the ingredients in your food processor.
Pulse until smooth. Serve with tortilla chips, pita bread, crackers, or whatever you like dipping with!
