The simplest sun-dried tomato white bean dip



This dip has a lovely texture. It’s really smooth… even smoother than hummus. It also takes less time to prepare than hummus, which is nice. I only discovered white bean dips in the past year. Where have they been all my life?! I’m going to try experimenting with other herbs and flavor combinations this year. Assuming they taste good.


I served this dip as part of the appetizer for the feast at my house this past Christmas and it was well liked by the vegetarians and carnivores in my life.


I’m not really sure what else to say about this dip. I mean there’s only so much you can say before you start repeating yourself, right? Some blog posts are meant to be short.


This is the food processor I use and I highly recommend it.
