All You Lemon-Garlic White-Bean Dip

With four people in our house we go through a large amount of snack foods. I try to make at least two home-made snacks a week, with at least one of them having an element of protein such as beans. I have made a number of hummus recipes, and while everyone in my family loves it, making the same snacks foods every week can get boring. The July issue of All You magazine had a recipe for Lemon-Garlic White-Bean Dip, which looked like a great way to get a new type of beans into my home-made snack foods.

Almost all the work for this recipe is done in the food processor. The total prep work takes less than 10 minutes and then 30 minutes of refrigeration. I made pita chips to go along with the dip. Pita chips are very easy, I just cut each pita into eight triangles, brush with olive oil, sprinkle with salt (and sometimes a bit of cumin), and bake for about 15-20 minutes at approximately 375 degrees.

This dip is a great way to get more beans into my family's diet. I did think that the dip is a tad bit too lemony for my tastes, I suggest decreasing the lemon juice to 1 1/2 tablespoons. Pita chips are always popular in my house and last less than a day, they make a great  addition to this recipe.

For the recipe go to All You Lemon-Garlic White-Bean Dip.
