Garlicky White Bean Dip

white bean dip


(Serves 4 as an appetizer)

Level: Barely Cooking

  • 1 can (15 oz) of cannellini beans washed and dried (yes, clean out Alll that gunk)
  • ⅓ cup of extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves grated garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon  fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, finely chopped
  • 4-5 large fresh basil leaves, finely chiffonaded (a chiffonade is a fancy french word for the way the herbs are cut. You gotta stack the basil leaves, roll them up, and then slice the long ways. Heres’ a youtube video. Don’t worry it’s short.)


  1. Combine all the ingredients
  2. Enjoy with: grilled bread, grilled chicken, grilled fish, roasted veggies, salad, or really anything! Also a great addition to any cheese board for someone who is vegan or lactose. Sometimes I even eat this with bread as my dinner.
