Creamy white beans blend up into an easy dip, and give paprika a chance to shine in this recipe.
I love making my own hummus and keeping it on hand for a quick an easy snack, to spread on brown rice crackers, in a wrap, on roast veggies, or add dobs onto a salad. But sometimes I get sick of it and want a different flavour (or run out of chickpeas). So I came up with this flavourful dip which features paprika, onion and garlic powder on a backdrop of creamy white beans. It’s super quick and easy to make and will last well in the fridge so is great for an on-hand snack. I often have it for breakfast too!
White Bean Paprika Dip Recipe.
*2 cups white beans (cannellini beans)
*2 tbsp tahini (6 tsp)
*½ tsp garlic powder
*½ tsp onion powder
*½ tsp paprika
*1 tbsp lemon juice
*1/2 -1 tsp salt (try 1/2 first then taste and add more if needed)
*Black pepper (as desired)
*Water as needed – this will depend on how soft the beans are, and how thick you want the dip to be but I used ¼ cup.
1. Place all ingredients in food processor. Blend until smooth, stopping once to scrape down the sides.
2. Sprinkle with a little extra paprika or try smoked paprika sprinkled on top and serve or chill for later.
