Spinach and White Bean Dip

Another dip from that Real Simple article!!


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • clove garlic
  • 15.5-ounce can cannellini beans, rinsed
  • 2 1/2 cups spinach
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill sprigs (...I used dried. SO KILL ME)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • crostini, for serving


  1. In a small saucepan, heat the oil with the garlic over medium heat until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes; let cool.
  2. In a food processor, combine the garlic oil, beans, spinach, dill, and lemon juice. Season with ¾ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper and puree until smooth. Serve with the crostini. 
Ok. This dip. SO GOOD. And really? Pretty healthy!! Took just a few mins. I ate mine with some flax tortilla chip things I had from Trader Joes, rather than crostini. Bottom line? SUCCESS!
