How Do You Make My Garlic Parmesan White Bean Dip?
Step 1. Choose Your Beans
I recommend any white bean, including great northern beans, cannellini beans, or navy beans, for their mild flavor and to preserve the white color of this dip. You can buy them canned or raw and uncooked, but I prefer to buy organic raw great northern beans and pressure cook them myself. It only takes 18 minutes under pressure in my Instant Pot pressure cooker. I can set it and forget it to cook a batch of beans. Typically I cook up more than I need and store them in a silicone bag in my freezer.
Substitutions: great northern beans, cannellini beans, or navy beans.
Step 2. Prep Your Cheese
Buying a block of cheese and grating it yourself is the best option for getting a smooth and silky white bean dip when served warm. Store-bought shredded cheese is often powder coated with cellulose, so the strands don’t stick together. But they don’t melt as smoothly as cheese grated from a block. My favorite block cheese for this recipe is Parmigiano Reggiano.
Substitutions: any white block cheese
Step 3. Prep Your Gralic
One of my favorite kitchen gadgets is my stainless garlic press. You’ll want to either finely chop or crush a clove of garlic in your press and have it ready to go into your dip.
Step 4. Time to Blend
A food processor works best for blending all the ingredients into a creamy dip, but I love using the chopper cup which comes with my favorite immersion blender. Combine the remaining ingredients including greek yogurt, cheese, garlic, and seasonings and simply blend until smooth.
Step 5. Warm And Serve
Pour your dip into an oven or microwave-safe bowl and warm it up in a 350 F oven for about 10 minutes. Or you can heat it in the microwave for 1 minute to melt the cheese. Then top with a few sliced green onions for an attractive garnish, and you’re ready to enjoy this delicious dip!
