Roasted Garlic Bean Dip

Roasted Garlic Bean Dip


"This is a rich tasting bean dip or spread that uses nonfat sour cream. It's great on veggies, pita, crackers, tortillas or just on a spoon. To use dry navy beans, soak them 8 hours, or overnight, then simmer them in a medium saucepan with enough water to cover for approximately 45 minutes, until soft. Enjoy!"

I made this for a pot luck at work and everyone enjoyed it. I saw people using it as a vegetable, tortilla and pretzel dip. Instead of sour cream I used some drained yogurt that I had on hand ...

Whilo not a terrible dip, I thought it was a little boring. There are several other dips I'd make before this one.

Wow!!! I really enjoyed this recipe. It's full of flavor, easy and versatile. I used different beans but stuck to the recipe otherwise. It's worth a try and would be a hit at any party.

Not terrible, but boring. Pretty flavorless, considering everything that goes into it. It's lacking acid.
