So I have to confess, I feel a bit like I’m cheating on my Best Hummus with this recipe. But I can’t help myself!

Now, white beans are such a versatile ingredient. From dip to Tuscan White Bean Soup and Maple Baked Beans, they adapt to the flavour of whatever they’re cooked with. In this case, lemon, garlic, and curry powder!

And, did I mention it’s wayyyy faster to make than hummus, and doesn’t need any tahini? Like…can we just all praise white bean dip for a second here? It’s just so good.

How to make pita chips

This Curried White Bean Dip is served with homemade pita chips on the side. Totally optional, but most definitely recommended!

To make the homemade pita chips, simply preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Cut the pita into triangles.

Then, coat them with a bit of olive oil and add any spices on top you love. I like to add some za’atar. Bake them off for 8-10 minutes until golden and crispy.
