This white bean dip is great with tortilla chips or carrots. This quick and easy dip can be whipped up in about 10 minutes.
One thing that you might have noticed when you started dealing with food allergies is the difficulty in finding safe prepared foods.
Once my son was diagnosed with a sesame allergy, it became impossible to buy hummus, due to the tahini, and in fact, many other prepared dips were also unsafe.
Thankfully, it’s very quick and easy to make homemade white bean dip, and I’m happy to report that this easy bean dip is much more delicious than the store bought versions.
- white beans
- olive oil
- cilantro leaves
- onion powder
- salt and pepper
- Rinse and drain the beans, and place them and the other ingredients in the food processor.
- Pulse until the bean dip is smooth and creamy.
- Taste and add more salt and pepper if desired.
- Serve with chips or fresh vegetables.
- You could use pinto beans or black beans in place of white beans.
- You can use a different fresh herb if you don’t like cilantro. Try fresh dill or parsley!
- You can leave the garlic out if you like.
- Try adding some lemon juice or lemon zest for a refreshing twist.
You could make this with a powerful blender if you don’t have a food processor. You could also use a potato masher to mash the beans, but the dip won’t be as creamy if you do it that way.
I do recommend canned beans for the best results in this recipe. If you use dried beans, it will take a lot longer for this recipe. Dried beans require cleaning, soaking, rinsing, cooking, and then cooling. They aren’t the best choice for this dip.
Try any fresh herb that you like! Fresh parsley, dill, or basil would all be good choices for this white bean dip.
This white bean dip is really versatile. You can make it for an after school snack or serve it as an appetizer for a party.
This is a nice thing to have in the refrigerator for those days that are crazy. It’s a good source of protein that’s quick and easy to grab if you’re on the go!
Serve it with crackers or vegetables, or you can even spread it on a sandwich or a wrap. I think you’ll love this simple recipe!
