White Bean -Roasted Pepper Dip

by Erica Dinho on October 25, 2009

White Bean and roasted pepper DipI love beans! In Colombia we may eat beans two or three times a day. I never get tired of eating beans so I have a long list of bean recipes. This one is a delicious white bean –roasted pepper dip. It is great as a light and healthy snack with pita chips, as an appetizer for your next party or for that unannounced visit, as it is quick and simple to prepare!



  • 1 can (15 oz) cannellini beans
  • 1 roasted red bell pepper
  • 3 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • Chives for garnish


  1. Place all the ingredients in the food processor and mix until well combined and smooth.
  2. Transfer the dip to a serving dish and top with the fresh chives. Serve with pita chips on the side.

Congratulations on your award! I don’t like beans much… it’s a texture thing. But I think I would like this dip, especially with the roasted red pepper.

Cool idea about adding pine nuts. I’ve made something similar with chcikpeas, roasted pepper and tahini: hummus.
