White Bean Dip with Rosemary and Garlic

We'd love for you to share!

There’s a whole lot of tempting treats going around this time of year. And, I’ll have a few more to share before the holiday season is over. But, today, I’m bringing you a quick and tasty white bean dip with rosemary and garlic.

Why share a healthy treat just as the holiday season is gearing up?

Because I need options. Lots of options. (And, I’m guessing you might too.) As all the wonderful seasonal dishes and decadent desserts begin to pop up, I want to have some healthy options that won’t leave me wanting. I whole-heartedly believe that you don’t need to abstain from any foods, especially during the holidays. But, January is just around the corner. 🙂

This white bean dip is creamy from the beans and tangy from the garlic. Ever since I made Three Cheese Rosemary and Garlic Pizza Bites, I have been keen on the rosemary-garlic-olive oil combination.

I think another reason that I’ve grown to love this herb so much is that my rosemary plant has been thriving for what seems like forever. (My thumbs are very…shall we say, brown.) If ever there was a hearty herb that wants to live, this is it, at least in my sunny neck of the woods.

Did I mention this dip is quick to make? Just pull out all of the ingredients, throw them in a food process and blend. The longest part of the process is chopping up the rosemary, which only takes a few minutes. The biggest problem will be deciding what to dip with. Fresh crudites? Crackers?

Here’s another idea. Slather it on a sandwich like a condiment. It’s deeelicious and transforms a ho-hum sandwich or wrap. The dip on a sandwich trick began about the time I made an over abundance of Healthy Warm Artichoke Dip.

Any way you decide to use it, this creamy white bean dip with rosemary and garlic will make you feel indulgent, without actually indulging. And, that’s a nice option to have during the holidays.
