It is a great alternative to the classic hummus and can be very addictive.
So why is it different from hummus?
I have used coconut yogurt instead of oil and tahini which gives a unique refreshing taste to this dip setting it apart from the classic chickpeas hummus. Roasted garlic elevates the overall flavor.
This cannellini dip / white kidney bean is made by cooking the beans from scratch in my instant pot/ pressure cooker . I have pressure cooked it in my Instant pot . After getting my instant pot I have developed a ritual of boiling one kind of bean and lentil that will last me the entire week . This has immensely helped me to include protein in our diet with ease and on everyday basis. I just pressure cook a batch once or twice a week and keep adding to various recipes. How easy it is to get your daily dose of protein !
You may use you traditional stove top pressure cooker for the same or use the store-bought cans. Whatever works.
If you do not have an instant pot do not shy away from using canned beans .
Made with handful of ingredients if you have the beans boiled already, this dip comes together in 2 minutes .
Serve this dip with crackers ,chips carrots, celery or pita.
This time I served this white bean dip with home made crispy pita chips.
