Whipped Roasted Garlic Dip with Marinated Olives & Toasted Sourdough Baguette

Prep Time: 40 min
Total Time: 50 min
Serve: 4-6

1 head of garlic

1 tbsp olive oil

1 can (15 oz) white northern beans, drained and rinsed

2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1 tbsp tahini

2 tbsp chili flakes

1 tsp fresh thyme leaves

1 tsp raw local honey

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Cut the top off the head of garlic to expose the cloves. Drizzle the garlic with olive oil and wrap it in aluminum foil.
  • Place the wrapped garlic in the oven and roast for 40-45 minutes, or until the cloves are soft and golden brown.
  • Remove the garlic from the oven and let it cool.
  • In a food processor, combine the roasted garlic cloves, white northern beans, olive oil, lemon juice, tahini, salt, and black pepper. Process until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  • In another bowl, combine the olives, olive oil, and fresh thyme leaves. Stir to combine.
  • To serve, spoon the roasted garlic and white bean dip into a serving bowl and top with the marinated olives. Serve with toasted sourdough slices.
