How to serve white bean dip with roasted tomatoes

This bean dip recipe is so yummy, you can serve it in so many ways! Toasted pita, pita chips, and even tortilla chips are a great vessel for this dip. For a low carb option, you can create a spread of vegetable crudités. We personally love using a crisp endive leaf for this dip!

Another way you can serve this delicious dip is as a spread on a sandwich or a wrap. Similar to hummus, this dip is creamy and thick. It is a great alternative to traditional sandwich spreads like mustard or mayo. This white bean dip is so versatile!

The herbs that make this white bean dip recipe so good!

We love fresh and ground herbs. They really add so much flavor to every recipe. And the seasoning is especially important when making a dip. We use fresh parsley, ground oregano and dried thyme for this white bean dip recipe.

It is easiest to find fresh parsley in the US because the herb grows well in many climates! Oregano is an Italian herb and is usually dried and ground into a spice. Thyme is a member of the mint family, and is indigenous to the Mediterranean coast!

All three herbs work to compliment each other in this dip recipe. If you are able to find fresh oregano and thyme, start with half the amount we call for in this recipe. Fresh herbs tend to be much more potent and can be overpowering, so you don’t want to go overboard!

Cannelloni beans are an incredible source of plant based protein. Even if you are not vegetarian or vegan, it is important to get protein from plant-based sources. Diversifying where your protein comes from is the best way to have a healthy, balanced diet!
