White Bean Dip

Inexpensive, nearly instantaneous, and deliciously wholesome, White Bean Dip is a creamy, tasty alternative to hummus or pinto bean dips. As my 8-year-old son put it affectionately, "It's really our main dip." And dinner's a party when appetizers become the main course.

Note on Dippers: Serve the most wholesome dippable food you can get away with: whole grain breadsticks or crackers (Ak-Mak and Finn Crisps are brands that we like, though they need to be broken into pieces); strips of whole wheat bread or toast; pita chips; whole grain tortilla chips; and veggies such as snow peas, raw carrots, bell peppers, and celery sticks, or lightly steamed broccoli, sugar snap peas and green beans.

Hands-On Time: 10 minutes
Ready In: 10 minutes


    2 (15 ounce) cans cannellini beans, drained and well rinsed
    3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, more or less
    1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    Pinch thyme
    3 tablespoons olive oil
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    1 large garlic clove, pressed


  1. Blend all ingredients in a food processor until very smooth, adding a tablespoon or two of hot water if the beans seems disinclined to become creamy.
