Crudites with Garlicky White Bean Dip

Print a PDf of this recipe here.

1 teaspoon olive oil
3 medium minced garlic cloves
15-1/2 oz canned cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1-1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1-1/2 tablespoon water
1/8 teaspoon table salt, or to taste
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon paprika

To prepare, heat olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat and saute garlic, stirring constantly, until garlic just begins to turn golden, about 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. In a food processor, combine oil mixture, beans and lemon juice. Process until smooth, slowly adding 1-2 tablespoons water to obtain a thick yet creamy consistency. Season to taste. Transfer dip to a small bowl and garnish with paprika. Serve with prepared vegetables (i.e., carrots, cherry tomatoes, etc.).
