This White Bean Dip is a wonderful, creamy alternative to hummus that is quick to make and perfect for a healthy appetizer or lunch.
White Bean Dip
During the summer, I love having simple little dips made to eat for a healthy lunch or snack. I think this White Bean Dip may even top my favorite hummus (if that is possible). I just grab a handful of crackers and carrots and am completely satisfied.
My new favorite cracker right now is Trader Joe’s Quinoa and Black Bean tortilla chips. So yum! And awesome with this dip!
Important tip: sautéing the onion and garlic before blending everything together really gives this dip an incredible flavor. I love the extra creamy texture!
