PANTRY STAPLE LEMONY WHITE BEAN DIP
Pantry staple lemony white bean dip is pretty easy, and it’s a great way to use that can of white beans that have been in your pantry forever but you’ve never known what to do with.
This dip contains only five simple ingredients:
White beans (like cannellini or great northern or navy)
That’s all you need to create a filling dip that goes well on top of salads, with crackers, veggies, or in wraps.
HOW TO MAKE THIS WHITE BEAN DIP
To make this dip, you’re going to bring the beans, the liquid from the can, and the garlic cloves to a boil, then drain and discard the excess water. Transfer the beans and garlic to a blender or food processor with the rest of the ingredients and then pulse until it’s completely smooth.
If you don’t have a blender or food processor, then feel free to just mash everything together with a fork. It doesn’t have to be fancy.
To serve, I suggest spreading the dip into a bowl and topping with some quality olive oil and a pinch of red pepper flakes or smoked paprika, but this step is optional, it’s delicious as it is.
