Herby White Bean Dip
Homecoming at my college was this past weekend, so I was in touch with a bunch of my former swim teammates about plans. We are getting a little too old to crash campus, but we all still wanted to get into the homecoming vibe and hang out together. At the last minute, it was decided that my apartment was the best location, so I had about an hour to prepare. Food wasn’t expected, but I thought it would be nice to serve some apps, so I looked into my pantry to see what I had laying around. This dip was the first of 2 things that I whipped up quickly and with mostly what was already on hand!
Very easy to make.
Some oil and extra herbs on top make it look classy. The pita was just tossed in a small amount of oil and salt and baked.
yummmmm. Honestly when I normally make a dip like this only about half gets eaten, but you can always count on the swim team to devour any food around! This was pretty much licked clean in 15 minutes.
One can drained and rinsed of cannellini beans. One clove of garlic, a tablespoon or so of fresh parsley and rosemary, and a teaspoon of dried oregano, and lots of olive oil. Blend till smooth. This takes about 3 minutes to make, and was crazy good, so much so that my friends were kind of freaking out about it. Why do people buy bean dip at the store?
Dan, this was so good, thanks for whipping all of this together.
