Creamy Cannellini Bean Dip

Mmm, Mmm, Mmm. I love a good bean dip. If you've never tried Cannellini beans, you should! To me, they taste like a cross between a kidney bean and a garbanzo bean. They're so delicious! This dip goes great with pretzels, tortilla or pita chips, vegetables (I bet carrots and celery would be so good with this!). I can't wait to serve this at my next party!

Also, if you don't have cannellini beans, or don't like them, any white bean should work in this recipe!

  • 3 cups cooked cannellini beans
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tbsp dried basil
  • 1/2-1 tsp salt
  • pinch of cayenne and red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Blend all of the ingredients in your food processor or blender. I like to chill mine overnight before serving to let all of the flavors blend (especially the cayenne and pepper flakes) and it's much better cold!


  1. That looks delicious! I'm going to make some the first chance I get. :-)

  2. It's super good! Let me know how it goes for you!

  3. Yum! Looks and sounds great. I just love the texture of white beans! So creamy and rich.

  4. I know I am a few years too late, but I just discovered your recipe a couple of months ago and it is by far my favorite cannellini dip recipe. It's become a go-to snack in our house, and in fact, I am whipping up a batch now to serve with Thanksgiving appetizers. Thanks for a great and easy recipe :)
