Not so long ago, I shared a few recipes that I prepared for a dinner I was hosting for the board members of a fundraising group I belong to (those recipes if you don't remember were The Best Green Beans Ever & Eggplant Caprese Salad). I don't know why back then I didn't also share the White Bean Dip I served. Seriously, it's good stuff.
I had made this dip a few years ago for a party and then sort of forgot about it. Then when I was making my menu for the ladies of the board, it popped in my head again. Originally, I had used fresh herbs but this time around I didn't have them on hand, so I changed up the recipe to use dry herbs instead. I was pleasantly surprised. It worked out fine.
To make the White Bean Dip:
- Heat some garlic and the herbs in a pan with olive oil
- Add canned cannellini beans (rinsed and drained) to the pan and cook just a few minutes until softened
- Process in a food processor with a little water to thin out
White Bean Dip Recipe Notes:
- Use a good quality olive oil for drizzling on the finished dip for best flavor
- Refrigerate at least one hour prior to serving, although a few hours is recommended
- Store leftover dip in refrigerator for up to a week
