Garlicky White Bean Dip

This dip is so tasty you might be tempted to just sit and eat it by the spoonful!  But add some veggies or crackers (Wasa are my faves) and you could have a full meal... or at least a lovely, healthy snack plate to serve to family and friends.

It keeps well in the fridge for a couple of days so don't be afraid to make it up ahead of time... it does get more garlicky too. 

Garlicky White Bean Dip

These beans were mashed by hand.

Make sure to smash and finely mince the garlic cloves, to release all the flavor.
