Great Northern White Bean Dip Ingredients

This dip utilizes great northern white beans. We love hummus around here but sometimes it’s nice to branch out and make dips with other bean varieties, like in our black bean lime dip.

You only need a few ingredients to make this simple white bean dip! This includes:

  • Great Northern White Beans
  • Aquafaba
  • Garlic Cloves
  • Lemon Juice
  • Basil
  • Garlic Salt
  • Nutritional Yeast

This dip is oil free! Yes, you heard that right, oil free because we substituted the oil with aquafaba. Aquafaba is the ‘bean juice’ or liquid from the can of beans. Alternately, if you cook your beans using the stovetop or instant pot method this is the water from the beans. Using aquafaba as the liquid means you can skip the oil and still retain the creaminess of the bean dip. Be sure to check out our oil free hummus if you want some other oil free dips!
