Hummus is one of my favorite go-to snacks, it’s typically made from chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, cumin, olive oil, garlic, and (optional) other flavors. I especially love avocado lime hummus or roasted beetroot hummus.

This artichoke and white bean dip is a wonderful alternative to hummus. It’s creamy, tangy, flavorful and makes a perfect healthy afternoon snack or appetizer.

I usually serve it with pita chips, but it would also be delicious with crackers, fresh veggies or spread on a sandwich.

The recipe comes together in no time, all you need is a can of cannellini beans, artichokes hearts, a clove of garlic, extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, and a food processor. Put all the ingredients in the processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Once it’s done, scoop the artichoke and white bean dip into a pretty bowl, sprinkle with some paprika, drizzle with extra virgin olive, garnish with parsley and serve it. EASY!

I like my dip with a thick and chunky texture, if you prefer a smoother consistency, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water.

The artichoke and white bean dip can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
