White Bean Dip for a Crowd (Moosewood Inspired...)

90 mins (prep 90)
10 ingredients
24 servings
I hosted a party for 60+ people recently and made this dip to go with veggies, pita chips, crackers and so on. This is from Moosewood's 'Cooks for a Crowd' book. It's similar to hummus in texture, but lighter and without the tahini flavour. It was simple enough to prepare and I made it a few days in advance. The recipe says it makes enough for 24 - OH MY, 120 more like it! :) How much you would go through would greatly depend on how many other dips and appie type things you have. After our party we still had half of the dip leftover. And that's not because it wasn't popular, it just makes a lot!! It's actually very tasty, easy on the pocket book and I love that you can prepare it in advance. Next time I may cut the recipe in 1/2. Note, prep time does not include soaking the dry beans overnight.
