White Bean & Artichoke Dip topped with Fresh Green Onion
I followed this self.com recipe pretty carefully but decided to amp up the garlic and to add fresh green onion slices as a topping. I think that blending in a bit of fresh lemon grass would also compliment the dip well (I will try this next time).
- 4 cloves garlic, peeled
- 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
- 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 cans (15.5 oz each) white beans (drained and rinsed)
- 1 can (14 oz) artichoke hearts (packed in water, drained)
I just changed the amount of garlic above from 1 to 4 cloves. When I made this recipe I crushed and sauteed the garlic in 1 tsp olive oil before adding it to the food processor. If you use a fresh lemon for the juice, zest the lemon before slicing and add this in for a delicious fresh taste. If you have fresh rosemary, use a spring of this instead of the dried kind.
Serve with endives leaves, cucumber slices, baby carrots, or whole-grain pita or tortilla chips. I like “FOOD SHOULD TASTE GOOD” Mulitgrain chips. Beanitos Black Bean Chips are also pretty healthy as far as chips go.
