Want an alternative to hummus or another dip at your table? Look no further than your pantry! Yes, your pantry. This white bean dip is easy to whip up in a food processor and the fresh taste beats store bought any day of the week!
Place the beans, garlic cloves, parsley, olive oil, fresh lemon juice, kosher salt, black pepper and Italian seasoning in a food processor and pulse until the beans are semi-coarse. That’s it! Serve it in a pretty bowl and drizzle a little olive oil over the top with a little extra cracked black pepper. I keep it simple and serve it with store bought pita chips or naan bread. It’s also nice with crudités.
Note: If you want to make your own pita chips, slice up some pita bread, brush lightly with olive oil, place them on a cookie sheet and bake in the oven at 400°F for about 8 minutes or until golden.
