We host friends and family quite frequently and one thing I’ve learned over the years is that it’s always a good idea to have an appetizer waiting for guests when they arrive. Not only is it great for quelling the appetites of hungry guests but it buys the cook some time to finish cooking the rest of the meal.

Since I don’t like to ruin appetites before serving a special meal, I typically stick to light and healthy appetizers such as this white bean riff off of my favorite dip: hummus. Unlike traditional hummus, this dip is made with cannellini beans instead of chickpeas. If you don’t have cannellini beans on hand, any white bean such as navy beans would work great.

For added flavor, fragrant rosemary and fresh garlic are blended in along with lemon juice and olive oil. Cayenne gives it a nice kick but you’re welcome to leave that out to keep it completely mild. We love serving it with gluten free, whole grain Crunchmaster® crackers so that we can accommodate any guests with a gluten sensitivity.

Pro Tip: This dip tastes even better the next day so save yourself time and stress and make it ahead of time! When it’s time for your guests to arrive, you’ll be one step ahead of the game and free to enjoy your guests.
