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!
Enjoy and Happy Eating!
