Chef’s Notes

  • Use ½ teaspoon garlic powder in place of minced fresh garlic cloves.
  • Use 2 teaspoons dried parsley in place of chopped fresh parsley.
  • Serve with whole wheat pita bread, tortilla chips, or cut-up fresh veggies.
  • Use Great Northern or navy beans instead of cannellini beans.
  • For a chunkier dip, or to make without a blender, mash beans, oil and water together with a fork until well blended. Stir in rest of ingredients.
