White Bean Artichoke Dip (or Spread)


I had a tin of artichokes on hand, and was craving dip, so I went searching through our recipe archives. I stumbled across this white bean artichoke dip from way back in 2006, and decided to whip it up!

This simple white bean artichoke dip recipe has a mild flavor that goes well as a dip or spread. Feel free to spice it up with a little curry, cayenne, or your favorite blend. It’s a very forgiving backdrop for various flavors. That said, I enjoy huge, healthy scoops of this artichoke dip as is or even served chunky-style atop a salad.

My picture shows the “chunky” version. If you are looking for a dip for vegetables, you might want to go with with the puree or less chunky option.

Prep time

This makes a great dip for crudite, but I also like it spread on bread for a hearty snack, or served atop a plant-based salad. I use white cannellini beans to make this recipe, but navy beans should also work well.
Recipe type: Appetiser
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 4 to 6 servings
  • 1 15-ounce can white (cannellini) beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 14-ounce can artichoke hearts (packed in water and drained)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried herbs or 1 tablespoon fresh (optional; parsley is nice)
  • ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor and pulse for a coarse dip or puree for a smooth dip. If you don't have a food processor, you can finely chops the artichoke hearts and herbs, and mash all ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Taste test, and if desired, add more lemon juice and/or salt, to taste
  3. Serve with pitas, chips, or carrot sticks and other vegetables.
