Roasted Garlic White Bean Dip
Health Highlights


2 clove(s) Garlic (peeled)
1 tsp Olive Oil, Extra Virgin (for roasted garlic)
1 can (15oz) Cannellini beans, canned (drained and rinsed)
2 tbsp Parsley, fresh (finely chopped)
1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp Lemon juice
2 tbsp Water
1 pinch Sea Salt (to taste)
1 dash Black pepper (to taste)


  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Sprinkle garlic with olive oil and wrap tightly in aluminum foil. Place on a baking sheet for 35-45 minutes, or until the garlic feels soft when squeezed.
  2. Place beans, roasted garlic cloves, parsley, olive oil, and lemon juice in a food processor and blend until creamy. If the mixture is too thick, add an additional tablespoon or two of water to reach your desired consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Some ideas for the leftover roasted garlic: add to mashed potatoes, blend into pasta sauce, sauté with vegetables, or simply spread on crusty bread.

Roasting gives garlic a mellow, slightly sweet, and nutty flavor. 

While this dip is the perfect addition to a veggie platter, it’s also a wonderful spread on a sandwich in place of mayonnaise.

Serves 6-8.
