Why You’ll Love This Creamy White Bean Dip

It is surprisingly easy to make your own homemade dips rather than always going with the store-bought versions, and not to mention cheaper! You are able to control the quality of ingredients, and it is usually easier on your wallet. It only takes 2 minutes to throw the ingredients for this creamy dip into the food processor, and you have yourself a delicious, healthy snack or appetizer.

White beans provide a good amount of fiber and protein, and the goat cheese adds that delicious tangy flavor that kicks the whole dish up a notch and makes it more interesting. This dip has been a go-to of mine when I’m doing meal prep on Sundays because it lasts all week and is the perfect afternoon snack to go alongside crackers and chopped veggies. You can also use it as a spread in sandwiches and wraps, it is insanely good and adds SO much flavor!

Ingredients for this White Bean & Goat Cheese Dip

  • White Beans (also known as cannellini beans) – they are so creamy and versatile, and don’t have a strong flavor so they pair well with the goat cheese
  • Crumbly Goat Cheese – even my goat cheese hating friend loves this dip! The goat cheese comes through more subtly than it would if you ate it on its own. It gives the dip a nice tangy flavor without being overpowering.
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil – a good quality olive oil gives so much earthy flavor to this dip and yields an even creamier texture
  • Garlic Powder – I like to use garlic powder for this dip instead of fresh garlic cloves. It gives it that garlic flavor without taking over
  • Salt & Black Pepper – staples in any dip! You don’t want to go overboard with the salt because the goat cheese has salt in it too

White Bean Dip Recipe Variations

I love the simplicity of this dip, but it is equally as amazing with a few fun variations! Here are a few things you can do to jazz it up even more…

  • Add herbs! – You can add basil or parsley (or a mix of both!) to add tons of fresh flavor
  • Sun-Dried Tomatoes – you can either blend them into the mix, or just add them on top for dipping
  • Roasted Red Peppers – you can get these in a jar and they are amazing, you can blend these right into the dip
  • Tahini – if you wanted to make the dip vegan, you can replace the goat cheese with creamy tahini, this will give it more of a hummus vibe

  1. Thank you so much for the recipe! I made the hummus this morning. I used Chevre from Vermont Creamery and skipped adding olive oil. It tastes fantastic!! I like your idea of keeping the ingredients simple so the rich flavor of goat cheese is fully embodied in the final product. Absolutely a new love for me! ???
