Healthy White Garlic and Herb Bean Dip Recipe

Now that spring is nearly here I have been working diligently in my herb garden.  Throughout the season as I harvest my herbs I take the leftovers that I cannot use right then and freeze them for later use.  This is one of the recipes I make to use some of my fresh garden herbs.  It makes a great summer time snack because it is healthy and light.  I hope you enjoy!

Recipe Type: Appetizer
Cuisine: American
Author: Lisa Samples
Sure to please the palate with burst of garlic and fresh garden herbs, this is the perfect dipping sauce for pretzels and veggies.
  • 2 cans of white beans
  • 1/4 c. liquid from beans
  • 5 – 6 cloves of chopped garlic
  • 2 T. fresh dill
  • 2 T. fresh mint
  • 1 T. fresh parsley
  • 2 t. fresh squeezed lemon (or calamansi – a Filipino citrus)
  • 1 t. fresh ground sea salt
  • 1/4 t. ground red pepper
  • 1/4 t. smoked paprika
  • 2 t. olive oil
  1. Drain the beans saving about 1/4 c. liquid.
  2. Place all ingredients into a food processor or blender. If you are blending be sure to chop all ingredients first.
  3. Puree until all ingredients are finely chopped.
  4. Garnish with fresh dill or parsley and serve.


Note: I use calamansi for my dip which is a Filipino citrus that reminds me of a cross between an orange and a lime.  If you don’t have calamansi available at your local Asian market use any combination of lemon, lime, or other citrus including oranges.
