White Bean Dip

Made with fresh thyme and rosemary, this yummy white bean dip is as aromatic as it is tasty. Garlic adds another layer of flavor.

white bean dipThis dip is a perfect accompaniment to sliced vegetables, toasted bread pieces, crackers or chips. You can serve it with some extra thyme for topping, pine nuts, or red pepper flakes to add a little kick to each bite.

The recipe is very straightforward and easy. Every ingredient other than the fresh thyme and rosemary can be kept on hand to assemble with little notice from guests.

A word about keeping fresh herbs: I almost never use all of the store bought fresh herbs in time for them to stay fresh. When I see that my fresh herbs are starting to turn brown, I take them out of the fridge and air dry them on paper towels. This way, I’m not throwing them out and wasting them. Yes, they’re dried like my jarred herbs, but these are “fresh dried.” Once they are completely dried up, I store them in my extra, empty spice jars and use them before my store bought dried herbs.

Lime chips are excellent with this dip. If you are eating it regular tortilla chips, you might consider adding a small squeeze of lime or lemon to the dip. Delicious!
