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.

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.
