I think any happy hour spread should feature some form of dip. Served with veggies, pita bread, or chips, dips are versatile and always popular. My go-to dip is hummus (I always have it in the fridge!) but sometimes I like to switch things up. This White Bean and Parmesan Dip pulls my Italian-loving heartstrings. A combination of creamy cannellini beans, peppery olive oil, piquant garlic, zesty lemon, and a generous amount of Parmigiano-Reggiano, it’s ultra-easy to make (just whirl everything in the food processor and you’re done!) yet tastes super luxurious. You can serve it with any and all dipping vehicles, or spread it over croutons and top it with chunks of top-quality canned tuna or sardines for a quick canapé.

Yield about 2 cups (500 ml)

This creamy White Bean and Parmesan Dip, which combines cannellini beans, olive oil, lemon, and Parmigiano-Reggiano, is ultra-easy to make and tastes super luxurious.

Ingredients

  • 1 can (19 oz/540 ml) cannellini beans, preferable low sodium or no salt added varieties, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano (about 2 oz/60 g)
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon)
  • 1 small clove garlic, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) kosher salt, or fine sea salt (use less if the white beans you’re using are salted)
  • Coarsely ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions

Add all ingredients to the bowl of a food processor. Blend until very smooth. Check the seasoning and adjust to your taste. If the mixture seems thick, add a bit of water, 1 tbsp (15 ml) at a time, until you reach a creamy, hummus-like consistency.

Serve at room temperature with crudités, sliced pita bread, pretzels, or chips.

STORAGE: You can make the dip ahead of time and store it in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Allow it to return to room temperature before serving for the best flavor and texture.
