White Bean Dip

Inspired by a recipe from Giada De Laurentiis, this FAILSAFE white bean dip is perfect for dipping veggies or your favorite crackers.

It took me a really long time to get into dips or spreads of any kind. I was a purist when it came to chips (salsa? EW.) and never wanted anything besides ketchup (okay, and pickles) on most things. So when I discovered a love for hummus, it was a strange and wonderful new world.

Sadly, my beloved spicy hummus became off-limits after being diagnosed with a nightshade sensitivity. As did most other things that I learned to like (like salsa!). Hummus was easy enough to make at home, and I did quite often, but it started to get a little boring. That’s when I found a recipe for white bean dip from Giada De Laurentiis. My husband and I devoured the entire bowl of that first batch in one sitting. And then we made again the next night and devoured it again.

With beans being one of the safe groups of foods on the FAILSAFE / RPAH Elimination Diet list, I knew I had to take a crack at making my beloved white bean dip into something that I could eat.

Enter in this FAILSAFE version of white bean dip. It’s got that great tang from the original, thanks to a little citric acid, and the garlic really complement the white beans nicely. It’s even great as a sauce for things like chicken and wraps when you add a little extra water (see recipe notes for how to do that).
