Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Roast your garlic by trimming the top of the bulb, drizzle it with olive oil, and roast in a 400˚F oven for 30 minutes. Squeeze out roasted garlic cloves.

    No time to roast your garlic? Substitute 3-4 cloves of grated garlic. Raw garlic is stronger flavored than roasted garlic, so only use 3-4 cloves to start. You can add more after tasting if you want more garlic flavor.

  2. Add all the ingredients to a food processor or blender. Puree until smooth. If the dip is too thick, add water or olive oil a teaspoon at a time and puree until it reaches the consistency you desire.

  3. Transfer the white bean dip to a serving bowl. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, sprinkle with reserved rosemary, and serve with vegetables, crackers, or crostini. This dip is also delicious as a sandwich spread. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
