Garlic Oil Cannelini Dip

 

This has become my go to dip for just about anything.

Company? Definitely.

Afternoon snack? Yep!

Football game? I think SO.

MY favorite part about this dip is that the ingredients are usually hanging around waiting to be used.

It’s that go-to snack or appetizer that you opt for when you are almost out of fresh produce and don’t have time to run to the store.

OH and did I mention it’s gluten free, vegan, whole 30 and anything else healthy?!

Cannelini vs. Great Northern White Beans

So I actually had to look this one up because I too, stood there in the canned food aisle not knowing which to grab!?

So cannelini beans are larger, more mild and have a silkier texture.

Great Northern Beans are smaller, more gritty texture-wise and have a nuttier flavor.

Other than that, they’re pretty similar.

Really BOTH of these would be delicious in this dish so use whichever kind you have on hand!

Your Garlic Oil

Okay so if your a garlic lover like me, you will LOVE this dip.

And the garlic oil…

OHH this oil!

Just give me the largest loaf of bread you can find and this oil. I keep saying I will just post a recipe for that. It is that good…and I promise I will!

Anyway, we have to keep one thing in mind about garlic…….it burns super easily!!

So when you simmer it in the oil, do it LOW and SLOW.

You should barely see the simmer bubbles underneath.

If you stat seeing browning happening on the garlic, you’ve gone past the point of no return. START OVER.

Burnt garlic is bitter garlic. Believe me, people will know.

It doesn’t take long so don’t rush it.

The longer you simmer, the more time you allow the garlic to infuse the oil!

I recommend at the very least, a minimum of 10 minutes.
