The perfect dip for any occasion has arrived: white bean garlic oil dip.
Have you ever had one of those snacks that you just can’t stop thinking about? That is this dip with the garlic oil for me. It’s so smooth and creamy and the oil goes so well with it. You can literally dip a carrot in or a tortilla chip. Makes everything more delicious. I’d say this dip is a great party food (for when we can have parties again, yeah?).
It’s also a nice change up from hummus! It’s very similar to hummus, just made with different beans. You can blend this up with an immersion blender or a food processor. I personally tend to use the immersion blender (handheld) because it’s less of a fuss. And less of a clean up too.
I guarantee that once you start making your own infused oils at home you won’t go back. They are so delicious and fantastic to have around. Instead of drizzling some olive oil on a salad, you could add a bit of garlic oil. Doesn’t that sound amazing? It’s especially delightful drizzled over soup as well, for example this minestrone.
The key to making this oil is not heating up the oil too hot. We do not want to burn the garlic, we want it to slowly cook a bit. The sesame seeds add a lovely bit of crunch and look beautiful too.
Just like my hummus recipe, the secret to making a very smooth white bean dip with garlic oil is using ice cold water. So get the ice cubes ready.
