If you like hummus, then you will most likely enjoy this white bean dip. It makes for a great alternative dip. Bake some homemade pita chips to dunk with, or be extra healthy and dip veggies in it. I also frequently enjoy a good slather of this on a veggie sandwich.
Good stuff either way you choose to eat it.
2 cups (15 ounce can) cooked cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1/3 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 cloves of garlic, roasted and peeled
1 teaspoon fresh chives, finely chopped
Fine-grain sea salt
Blend all ingredients together in a food processor until smooth and creamy. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with vegetables or pita chips.

Slice pitas into 6 small triangles and place onto a baking sheet. Brush with olive oil and lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
