Creamy white bean dip flavored with roasted garlic and nutty parmesan cheese.
This past summer I was invited to participate in a series of short videos called Flavor Bits, produced by Chicagonista for Nielsen-Massey Vanillas. Each video was hosted by a different Chicago-area blogger and covered a different easy recipe using Nielsen-Massey vanilla products and/or flavor extracts.
Since my love of baking and all things cookies is pretty well known, I was invited to do a video demonstrating my No-Chill Sugar Cookies recipe.
Want to see? Here you go, just in time for Christmas! (Be kind, please! xoxo)
Now that I have reminded you of the perfect cookie recipe to make this week, let’s talk about this Roasted Garlic Parmesan White Bean Dip.
I know that we have all been stuffing our faces with a few too many Brown Sugar Caramels and probably a bit too much Double Gingerbread Cake, so I thought we might need a light yet flavorful appetizer option to help ourselves out a little.
This dip is the perfect option. All it requires is a handful of ingredients – white beans, garlic, parmesan cheese, and a bit of parsley, olive oil and lemon juice – and a food processor. The roasted garlic is incredibly flavorful, the cheese is nutty, and the beans are super creamy, making this the perfect dip with pita chips or veggies.
Put this dip out while finishing up Christmas dinner and get everyone to even out their sugar intake for just a few moments – I promise, they won’t even realize that it’s good for them.
This was a huge hit at Andy’s Bday party! We even added the leftovers to some turkey sandwiches the next day! Soooo good! Glad I got to taste this one for myself!
Yum! This looks awesome… love roasted garlic 🙂 Merry Christmas!
you look soooo cute in the video!
and now I’m all curious about white bean dip–does it taste like hummus?
The dip doesn’t taste like hummus (no tahini in it and the flavors are a bit different than a traditional hummus), but the texture is very similar. If you like hummus, you will like this for sure.
I love it. Even my son loves it.
does it taste like hummas in any way????
It has the same kind of texture as hummus does, but a different flavor since it uses the white beans instead of chickpeas.
This was fantastic! I can’t wait to try more of your recipes. 🙂
This was lovely! A perfect balance of flavours and very satisfying. I was able to make it in my blender and it turned out fine, with a nice smooth texture.
I am so glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you so much for sharing your feedback!
I’m a principal at an international school in Nigeria. A group of faculty get together on Sundays to watch Netflix, and my apartment was today. I could find all the ingredients for this in our local stores, which isn’t the case most of the time!
Great recipe, the garlic roasting came out perfect and serving it with some local veggies.
Yay! I’m so glad the ingredients were accessible to you and you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for leaving your feedback.
Can you make this the day before?
Hi Laurie! You absolutely could. It’s almost better the next day!
