Easy, Quick and Cheap Bean Dip!

I made this during todays third snow day of the year. I just used white beans I already had in the house, it was so easy and pretty tasty. It tastes healthy, and I like the texture better than hummus, less chunky. 

  • 1 15-ounce can of canellini beans (rinse them well and pat dry before using)
  • 1 small garlic clove (you can use a little more or a little less depending on your preference)
  • The juice from about half a lemon ( I cheated with lemon juice from a bottle)
  • A little more than 1/8 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt to taste

Throw everything into food processor and blend until its smooth! So tasty! 

I ate it with everything I had, I tried it with pretzels, carrots, bagged pita chips and even pita chips I made from home. 

TO make pita chips from home, Spread thin layer of butter over pita bread, (flat like a wrap) and sprinkle some garlic powder. Throw in toaster until pita begins to bubble and become light brown. 

There are so many things you can do with this dip. Put chunks of anything over it. Shrimp, garlic, make it greek with chopped cucumbers, feta and tomatoes. Mix in some pesto or some arugula.
