Ingredients
  • 1 head garlic
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for roasting garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • Two 14-ounce cans white beans, rinsed and drained
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Assorted cut-up raw vegetables, such as carrots, celery and peppers, for serving
  • Baked tortilla chips, for serving
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

  • Slice off the very top of the garlic head. Drizzle the head with olive oil and wrap in foil. Place on a sheet tray and bake until tender and fragrant, roughly 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool. Remove the cloves and mash with a wooden spoon.

  • Add the olive oil, basil, mint, beans, lemon juice, and some salt and pepper to a food processor and pulse until smooth. For a smooth texture, leave the machine running for a moment. Serve with the vegetables and baked tortilla chips.

  • Cook's Note: Make this dip a few hours ahead of time so the flavors have time to marry.
