This creamy bean dip is the answer to all your unsolved “what should we eat” questions. Or at least it has been for me over the last few weeks. It is a seriously versatile dip and pairs with pretty much everything from cheese and crackers, leftover baked chicken, on top of a salad, as a replacement for sour cream on a baked potato, with roasted veggies, and simply by the spoonful. The possibilities are endless! 

How creamy is creamy bean dip?

Or should we ask, how do you make creamy bean dip creamy without cream? It depends on the beans and olive oil. Using butterbeans or cannellini beans instead of chickpeas gives a creamier and smooth texture. If it is not coming out smooth enough do not be shy about adding in more olive oil. Good olive oil should never be underestimated. 

Creamy bean dip is made with white beans, garlic, quark and slightly flavoured with chipotle paste. Perfect with veggies, baked potatoes and chips.

Another key to this dip is to gently cook the garlic, which mellows out the flavour and ensures it won’t steal the show. The beans also get a quick cook and then you blend with a pinch of salt, a dash of chipotle paste or other herbs. If you serve it right away, the dip will still be warm and perfect to spread over a piece of crusty bread. It is also excellent cold and keeps for a couple of days.

Drizzle it with olive oil

It’s kind of like hummus? Ummmm maybe? Having a sesame allergy, I’ve never tried real hummus because it contains tahini. Normally, tahini is what brings the creamy texture to hummus, so instead, I use a creamier bean, add a lot of olive oil and blend it like crazy!

I have no clue what I am missing when it comes to hummus, so I think it does the trick! What I do like about hummus is how many places serve it with a drizzle of olive oil. So I copied the idea and if this is why people love hummus, I get it!
