Dip it…dip it good

April 22, 2012

This white bean dip is easy, easy and easy. It makes a great light lunch when paired with some bread and crudite’ and can rise to the occasion as an appetizer when you’re entertaining. Similar to hummous ( and lower in fat) yet there are no exotic ingredients here…it’s likely you can whip some up right now. Blend in your processor a can of drained and rinsed white beans, a couple of cloves of garlic roughly cut, 2-3 tablespoons of general use olive oil, 2-3 tablespoons of lemon juice (I have found I like to use the brine from pepperoncini as the acid) and a good pinch of kosher salt and a few good grinds of black pepper.  This recipe,http://www.pbs.org/everydayfood/recipes/white_bean_dip.html, can be tweeked as I did to suit you own taste and menu changes. Love some capers? Add the juice and then fold some in…love cumin? sprinkle it on. Now, go make yourself a snack.
