rustic white bean & herb dip


What to do with leftover white beans from this?

Make a dip of course!


1 can or leftover beans

2 Tbsp olive oil

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1-2 Tbsp herbs, chopped ( I used rosemary and thyme)

Heat oil in skillet (if you want it burnt like mine – which actually turned out great – get the oil really hot). Add garlic and saute for a few minutes, add herbs and set aside.

Mash beans (or process if you want it really smooth but I liked the chunks). Pour olive oil mixture over beans and stir to combine. Serve with veggies, crackers or eat by the spoonful 😉

  1. this looks delicious!

    i had soooo much fun chatting with you on saturday! thanks so much for meeting up – we shall need to do it again next time i am in minneapolis. happy monday 🙂

  2. Great idea…I’m always trying to think of new dips and spreads to have…I eat wayyyyy too much nut butters and cheese I think…it’s uncontrollable – I can’t restrain myself 🙂 Nice blog!

    • I too love nut butters, but cheese is my weakness!

      • I know! And trust me, about the Yoga training…I’ve had less than a year’s experience, and on and off…and my balance sucks and I barely know anything about it…yet yeah I’m doing it – I feel like I need to for personal reasons right now…I don’t know to be honest (if you’ve read my other posts, I’m all over the place 🙂
        But yeah, I think anybody can go for it…it takes all kinds. I’m doing it every 2nd weekend for the next 8 months…it’s just life gets in the way and I’m totally stressed out.

        Add me to your Roll if you like 🙂
