I decided to make this on a Saturday afternoon. And yes, it was good. But as the title says, it pretty much tasted like hummus. The only thing is, I like other flavors in my hummus as well, like garlic, or roasted red pepper, or kalamata olives, or well pretty much anything. This just fell a little flat in comparison. I also have gotten used to the Stacy’s Pita Chips which have the perfect amount of salt (I also really enjoy their garlic parmesan flavor) so these fell a tiny bit flat in comparison as well.
The one aspect of this dip that I did really like was how fast it was. You don’t have to “food process” (that’s a verb right?!) it as long as you do chickpeas to get a nice smooth texture. I also really liked how nice and bright the lemon juice was. All in all, it was a pretty decent snack. I would totally be on board to make it again, but I would probably add something else to make it a bit more flavorful. I think parmesan would be a good and easy addition.
Has anyone else made a white bean dip before? Have you found it to be a little less thrilling than hummus?
