White Bean Dip with Rosemary and Cranberries
Naturally gluten and dairy free, this White Bean Dip with Rosemary and Cranberries is a fun, seasonal twist on traditional hummus. Bonus points because it’s healthy too!
Move over hummus, there’s a new dip in town. White Bean Dip with Rosemary and Cranberries is unexpectedly addictive. The earthy rosemary and sweet cranberries are seasonal and festive and thanks to the garlic infused olive oil, the dip is creamy beyond belief. Pretzel thins and celery sticks are my favorite way to scoop but any vehicle to get this dip to your mouth will work just fine. I haven’t tried it yet but I’m pretty sure this would be incredible in a turkey or veggie wrap too.
This dip was my contribution to our cookie exchange earlier this week. Maybe even better than all the cookies we take home are the appetizers and homemade soup we eat before. This group of ladies I get together with know their food. We feasted on multiple cheese trays loaded with local cheeses, tasty crackers and marinated olives, smoked salmon, hot rueben dip and a homemade cranberry salsa over cream cheese that was out of this world. And my sweet friend Heather made her now infamous speciality cocktail made with prosecco, pear nectar and cranberries- hello hangover in a glass– it’s sooooo tasty and will sneak up on you if you’re not careful!
Have a great weekend everyone and as always, thanks for reading! xo, KelleyPrint
