Description

Lemony Artichoke White Bean Dip – a quick and easy Vegan Appetizer (a twist on “hummus“) that can be made in 10 minutes flat. Great for parties and gatherings and made with simple pantry ingredients!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 14-ounce can white beans, rinsed and drained ( about 1 1/2 cups cooked white beans)
  • 12-ounce jar marinated artichokes hearts (about 1 1/2 cups), drained, save the marinade!
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 tablespoons tahini paste
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked pepper
  • zest from one large lemon, divided
  •  1 tablespoon olive oil

Garnish: olive oil, chili flakes ( Aleppo are nice) Parsley or dill, lemon zest.

Serve with crackers, veggies, toasty pita bread or chips.


Instructions

  1. Place drained, rinsed white beans in a food processor (or use a Vita mix- for ultra-creamy!), add garlic, drained aritchoke hearts, tahini paste, salt, pepper and 2/3 rds of the lemon zest. Add 1 tabblespoon olive oil and 3-4 tablespoons of the marinade ( start with 3) and puree until ultra-smooth. In a food processor, this may take up to 2 minutes! You want this as creamy as possible.
  2. Taste and adjust salt, adding more to taste. For a “looser” dip, add a little more marinade, a tablespoon at a time.
  3. Spoon Artichoke dip into medium-sized shallow bowl and with the back of a spoon, swirl a circular “well” into it, where the olive oil will go. See photos.
  4. Drizzle a couple tablespoons olive oil into the “well”, sprinkle with chili flakes snf scatter with fresh herbs and the remaining lemon zest.
  5. Serve with crackers, veggies, chips, or toasty pita bread.

Notes

If using canned aritchoke hearts in water- you will need to “up” the oil, add some lemon juice as well as the zest, and possibly up the salt. Marinated artichokes work best here!

This will keep 3 days in the fridge.

  1. I made this to go with a veggie platter and it was perfect. I will make this again. It’s an easy recipe to follow and is delicious!

  2. I really want to make this… what would you sub in for the tahini? My husband is allergic to all things sesame, and tahini would send him straight to the emergency room.

    1. I would do a combo of olive oil and maybe a little greek yogurt, if not vegan. 🙂

  3. Such a lovely appetizer, smooth and creamy and highly flavorful. It doesn’t take too long to make and will be something we have again and again!

  4. I’m enjoying this delicious dip as I write this review. I cooked the dry white beans from Rancho Gordo and used up the marinated artichokes jar from Costco that was sitting in the back of my fridge for a while. It tastes better than regular hummus! I will be making this again. Thank you for this recipe.

  5. Just made this and it’s outstanding. No more regular humus for me. It barely made it into the storage container, just kept eating it. Thank you!

  6. This is outrageously delicious and so easy to make! I’ve made it for several parties and it’s been a huge hit. Children and adults alike have enjoyed it. This will be my go- to quick and easy appetizer. Love it!

  7. Thanks for another excellent recipe. I almost always have beans I cook from scratch on hand and so it was for this recipe so I measured out a can equivalent here to sub for the canned beans and worked like a charm. (I had Rancho Gordo cassoulet beans that needed cooking and they were nice and creamy when done and in this). As always with the recipes you publish this was easy and reliable for great outcome of being both healthy and delicious. I thought the shallow serving plate I served it in might actually get licked clean. 🙂

    1. Love Rancho Gordo Beans! Glad you enjoyed this and I bet it especially delicious with those lovely beans!

  8. I served this as an appetizer for Christmas. It was a huge hit with all the members of my family including the young picky eaters.
    Very creamy and light. Great with
    Crostini, veggies and crackers.

  9. I made this recipe but need help with the measurements. I cook my own beans, instead of using the canned variety. I weighed 14oz of cooked beans but it seemed like a lot. So I cut it back but, my dip was dry, even after adding more marinate and oil. How do I convert a cannned measurement in a recipe?

    The flavour of the dip was great and I want make it again but with a better texture

    1. Hi Rob, I’m so sorry about that. One can equals about 1 1/2 cups cooked drained white beans. I’ll adjust the recipe.

  10. I love the lemony artichoke white bean dip. I’ve been eating purely plant based for 3 weeks and your recipes are so inspiring and delicious!

  11. I LOVE this Lemony Artichoke White Bean dip. It was easy, flavorful and simply, delicious. I am in charge of bringing 2 dips and a salad for the appetizer portion of our family Christmas dinner and this will definitely be one of them.
