Roasted Garlic White Bean Dip

    1 hour 30 minutes

    This is a rich and nutritious dip, great with Turkish or Lebanese bread, crackers, tortilla chips or just spooned onto a salad! If you prefer to use dried beans, soak them overnight, then simmer in enough water to cover for approximately 45 minutes, until soft.

    Used different ingredients. This is excellent! I used cannelli beans because thats what I had, otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Wouldn't change anything! Thank you!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. This was pretty good. But I made this to go with carrots - not so good! I think it would taste awesome on tacos though. Also, I used only half the garlic - it was more than plenty. My garlic LOVING husband said it was a bit too much. But I might make it again to use in place of refried beans.  -  29 Sep 2008
