  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • One 15-ounce can of white beans equals approximately 1 3/4 cups of cooked beans.
  • If you like an extra smooth and creamy texture, you can blend another tablespoon of olive oil into the dip.
  • I'm serving the dip with these gluten-free crackers. But crackers, or veggie sticks are both great!
