White Bean and Garlic Scapes Dip


  • 1 (15.5 oz) can Cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/3 cup sliced garlic scapes (from about 3-4 scapes)
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • additional lemon juice, salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste (optional)
  • additional sliced garlic scapes for serving (optional)


  • Add white beans, garlic scapes, lemon juice, salt and pepper to the bowl of a food processor. Process to combine.
  • With motor running, slowly add in olive oil. Continue to process until combined and mixture has the texture of a rough puree (similar to hummus).
  • Season with additional lemon juice, salt and freshly ground pepper to taste, blending to combine.
  • Spoon dip into a serving bowl or plate, top with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and additional sliced garlic scapes, if desired.


  • This dip is wonderful served with toasted flatbread triangles and assorted crudité.
  • The garlic flavor really comes through in this dip, if you prefer a less strong garlic flavor, start with 1 garlic scape, taste and then add more if desired.
