White Bean Dip with Pine Nuts

Recipe by  

"I made this as an alternative to tomato sauce for a pizza topping, but I think it was even better the next day as a dip. The amount of ingredients I used only makes about a cup, so you may want to double or triple the amounts if making for a party. "

Directions

  1. Place the pine nuts, basil, and oregano into a food processor. Cover, and pulse 2 or 3 times to finely grind the nuts. Add beans and garlic; process until smooth, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Pour in the lime juice, tomato, salt and pepper, and pulse 2 to 3 times until mixture is smooth and spreadable. With the food processor running, drizzle the oil into the dip. If mixture becomes too thick, add a tablespoon of water at a time until the dip is the right consistency.
  2. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight to blend the flavors before serving.

Big hit at the Chirstmas party! Doubled the recipe due to numbers only complaint was a little to much garlic. Will make again with 1/2 to 2/3 the amount of garlic.

We are garlic wimps! The two cloves that I put into the dip, were over-whelming. I had to do something to mellow it out. I baked the dip in the oven for about 45 minutes. It helped some. Then I added some parmesan cheese to it. We ate it all! My husband complained about the garlic burping back on him, but I was fine. Love how easy it was to make, though. Maybe garlic wimps like us, need to just use garlic salt instead?? Thanks.

I love this. I made it the first time just like the recipe. It was great to dip pitas and veggies in. I made it a second time and added a bunch of sun dried tomatoes tomatoes. I can't wait to try new variations! Thanks!

This recipe is very good. I think it would benefit from more garlic, as the previous reviewer mentioned. I used dry oregano instead of fresh and a regular tomato and it turned out fine. Great on pita bread but would also make a good spread on a sandwich.

Easy and delicious appetizer dip! Good with pita chips and fresh veggies. A nice alternative to hummus. Maybe next time I'll stir in some chopped artichoke.

Mmm, this was good after sitting for several hours. I just used it as a spread for crackers. I might try it on a pizza of some kind.

If you like bean dips, you'll like this recipe. I used extra garlic, but I am a garlic freak. I also put in a little extra of the herbs. I dipped crackers in this dip and also used it in a quesadilla.

I enjoyed this recipe. It was easy to make and the beans could easily be even mushed with a fork. It tasted great on toasted bread or even with baby carrots. I will make this again!
