  • canned cannellini beans (or dried–see below)
  • fresh garlic cloves
  • fresh lemon juice
  • fresh sage leaves
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and black pepper
  • cayenne pepper
  • pitas

What are Cannellini beans?

They are basically white kidney beans, called Cannellini in Italy and India. They are a bit bigger than navy beans or Great Northern beans, though either of those would probably work fine for this recipe as well.

Can I use raw beans?

You can use raw beans but they'll need to be cooked first. I like to use canned beans because they're already soft and ready for the recipe. But if you like to cook your own beans you can definitely do that, just use 15 ounces of the cooked beans when they're done!

How to make seasoned pita chips and bean dip:

Making this delicious recipe is so simple. You can whip up a batch of the white bean dip and seasoned pita chips for any party or gathering.

I've also been known to make a batch of this easy dip to have in the fridge for snacking. We like to dip carrots, celery and bell pepper strips in it!

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. 
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut each pita into 8 equal-sized wedges. Lightly brush pita wedges with olive oil on both sides and place on lined baking sheet. 
  3. Season pita with salt and pepper before placing in oven. Bake for 5-6 minutes before turning each wedge. Return to oven and continue baking for another 5 or 6 minutes, or until pita wedges are golden brown. Remove from oven and set aside. 
  4. Add cannellini beans, fresh garlic, lemon juice, sage leaves, and olive oil to the bowl of a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. 
  5. Pour bean mixture into a serving bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste. Right before serving, add a dash of cayenne pepper and a drizzle of some high-quality extra virgin olive oil. Serve with seasoned pita chips or vegetable crudités. 

If you are watching calories or carbs you can easily skip the pita chips and use fresh cut vegetables for dipping.
