Healthy White Bean Dip

No need to spend a lot of money on fancy store-bought bread spreads or dips when you can make this at home yourself. 


  • 8 garlic cloves, peeled and halved
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 15-oz canned white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar (you could substitute this with red wine vinegar, sherry wine or balsamic vinegar)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Sauté the garlic in olive oil in a pan over medium heat for approx 10 minutes. Be sure to not burn it. 
  2. Transfer garlic and oil to a food processor. Add the beans, vinegar, and salt. Purée until the mixture is smooth. 
  3. Spoon the mixture in a bowl and serve with toasted pita, crackers, vegetables, toast or crostini.
