Lemony White Bean Dip with Fresh Herbs


2 cups cooked white beans
1 green garlic clove, chopped
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided into 1 tablespoon and 3 tablespoons
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon sea salt (or to taste)
Black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons fresh parsley
3 tablespoons fresh chives
Pita chip or sliced seasonal vegetables


  1. In a medium-sized pan, heat the garlic in 1 tablespoon olive oil. Cook until fragrant and then add the white beans and rosemary. Sauté for another 3-4 minutes or until garlic is soft and fragrant.
  2. Transfer the beans to a food processor. Add the salt, pepper, lemon juice, and remaining olive oil. Process on high, stopping every now and then to scrape the bowl down, until mixture is totally creamy and smooth. Pulse in the fresh parsley and chives.
  3. Serve with an extra drizzle of olive oil and veggies or pita chips.
