As someone who isn’t a sports fan, my only concern at a Super Bowl party is the food. This smooth, delicious White Bean Dip is a great alternative to the usual hummus made with garbanzo beans. It’s super easy to make and it’s a healthy option that won’t break your New Year’s resolution.
Makes 6 appetizer servings
- 4 pita breads
- 2 tablespoons & 1/3 cup olive oil
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 ½ teaspoons salt, 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 (15 oz) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
- ¼ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 garlic clove
PREHEAT OVEN TO 400 DEGREES
Cut pitas horizontally into 8 wedges, arrange on a baking sheet, brush with 2 tablespoons oil & sprinkle with oregano, salt, & pepper. Bake 8 minutes then flip & bake another 8 minutes.
In a food processor, combine beans, lemon juice, garlic, salt & pepper. Pulse until coarsely chopped. While pulsing add 1/3 cup of olive oil & parsley until creamy. Can be made & refrigerated 1 day in advance. Serve & enjoy!
