White Bean Dip

November 26, 2012

This dip is really healthy and MUCH better than store bought bean dip and even (YES I said it) many store bought hummus’s. Its so easy to whip up a bean dip or a hummus at home and they taste way fresher and better. This recipe is full of garlic so if you don’t like too much then add your garlic one clove at a time to taste. The other great thing about making dips is that you can add whatever you like to change the flavour. They are SO fun to play around with.

I decided to add ancho chili powder to mine and it gave it this spicy kick that I loved. This dip is full of protein and a great snack to have with vegetables or some whole wheat pita bread.

3 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp lemon juice

2 minced garlic cloves
PINCH of ancho chili powder

Paprika for topping

    Visually, I think that the paprika makes all the difference – cannot wait to make!!

    This looks amazing. I made your goats cheese puff pastry the other day. It was a hit. Question – can I do this in a blender, my food processor broke.

      I think it should be fine – as long as your garlic is chopped finely before you add it and make sure not to over blend it – maybe use a lower speed!

      Let me know if it works!!

    I just made this…yummy! I added some chili powder, cumin, and cayenne as well as a little more lemon juice, for personal preference, and it’s delicious!
