Recipe Details
  • 1 tsp olive oil, extra-virgin
  • 3 clove(s) garlic clove(s), minced
  • 15 1/2 oz canned cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp water
  • 1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp paprika, or chopped fresh parsley (optional)
  1. To prepare dip, heat oil in a small saucepan over medium heat; sauté garlic, stirring constantly, until garlic just begins to turn golden, about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  2. In a food processor (or blender), combine oil mixture, beans and lemon juice. Process until smooth, slowly adding 1 to 2 tablespoons of water to obtain a thick yet creamy consistency; season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Transfer dip to a small bowl and garnish with paprika or chopped parsley, if desired. Serve with fresh vegetables. Yields about 1/4 cup dip per serving.
