Got scapes?

White Bean and Garlic Scape Dip

I do! And besides pesto that I’ve been putting on everything, I came up with this dip. Well, not really, Brown Eyed Baker did, and I had the ingredients to make it. It was great!!

Plus, this is better for you than spooning Nutella into your mouth from the jar, or eating an entire pie in two days. WHYCAN’TISTOP?!

I’m going to keep this post short. I have a GIANT end of summer report to write for work, need to prepare for a 4 day long camping adventure, and am getting stuff ready for my sister’s arrival on Wednesday. What the heck do you do with an 18 year old when neither of you have any money?!…this is going to be interesting!

White Bean and Garlic Scape Dip

ANYWAY, this dip is good alongside some pita chips, fresh vegetables, tortilla chips or crackers! Enjoy, everyone!!

White Bean and Garlic Scape Dip

White Bean Garlic Scape Hummus

Serving Size: 6-8

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup chopped garlic scapes
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 can (15-oz) cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • ¼ cup olive oil

Instructions

  1. In the bowl of a food processor, process the garlic scapes, lemon juice, sea salt and black pepper until finely chopped, scraping the sides as needed. Add the beans and process until it's pureed.
  2. With the machine running, slowly pour in the olive oil and process until smooth. Check the consistency (if it is still thick, you can add a few tablespoons of olive oil to thin it out a bit). Taste, and add more salt and pepper, if desired.
  3. Serve with your favorite fresh vegetables or pita chips!

  4. When my sister (17) comes to visit, we like to play “What! You haven’t seen that movie?!” and I make her sit down and watch every movie I feel like a 17 year old should’ve seen at this point in her life. She hadn’t seen the lion king (!!!!!).

    I’m terrified for the day one of my siblings wants to come visit. How on earth will I entertain them?! My oldest younger brother and I have a lot in common, but my next brother and sister are so different from me. One is into art and videogames and the other is into Nascar and country music…yikes! If your sister is outdoorsy, you’re probably all set, I imagine. Or you could cook a lot. Or bake. Check out farmers’ markets and things. I hope you enjoy her visit!

    • katrina says:

    WOW this looks amazing, I never thought to add scapes to a dip and I just so happen to have a bundle of scapes in my crisper being totally ignored- now I know what to do with them! Have an amazing time with your Sis 🙂

  26. I tried garlic scapes for the first time a couple of weeks ago. They came in a delivery of produce that I get and I had no clue what to do with them. Sadly, most went bad. Thanks for the recipe idea!
