White Bean and Sage Dip

White Bean and Sage Dip

The rich flavor of sage complemented by a distinctive - but not overpowering - lemon zing sets this healthy dish apart from other bean dips. You can also serve it as a spread on crackers with slices of tomato.


  • 1 (15-ounce) can of white kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 heaping tablespoon chopped sage (about 7 to 8 leaves)
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor.
  2. Pulse until the mixture is smooth, about 30 seconds. Serve with carrots, celery, pretzels, crostini, or crackers. Makes 1 1/2 cups.
