How to Make a Vegetable and 5-Minute Smoked Paprika Garlic Bean Dip Tray in Minutes
Keeping your refrigerator stocked with containers of prepared vegetables allows creating a quick assortment of dipping choices for a light meal on the fly or for company (it’s great to have on hand for healthy snacking too). If you don’t want to do the prep yourself, take advantage of the prepared vegetables sold in grocery stores (all stores seem to have caught on to busy lives needing help with food prep).
Crisp Vegetable Trick: If you find your celery or carrots have become soft or pliable but are still fresh, cut them into serving sizes and put them in a bowl of ice water. They will firm back up to have the crisp crunch you love! You can store them in glass jars or containers in water too to keep them crisp all the time.
What does 5-Minute Smoked Paprika Garlic Bean Dip taste like?
Creamy cannellini beans are a perfect blend with the smoky, slighty spicy flavors from the paprika, garlic and black pepper. This dip has some zip!
How to make 5-Minute Smoked Paprika Garlic Bean Dip – Step by Step:
It sounds silly to say ‘step by step’ for this recipe because it’s one step: put everything in a mini chopper, food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Bam! That’s it.
Best Recipe Prep Tip: I use an electric mini chopper for everything and it is the perfect device for this type of task. All the ingredients fit easily, and it whips up the dip in minutes. Essentially a mini food processor, the electric mini chopper is an appliance that is affordable (between $15-$35) and will cut time out of ingredient prep for any chopping or dicing tasks.

I added a couple of tsps. of chopped sun dried tomatoes (in oil) plus 1 tsp of the oil they came in, and a dash of onion powder. Yum! Thanks for a great and so easy recipe.

The flavor was wonderful with the smokey paprika. Will definitely make this again! A word of caution to those who are cutting back on salt, this was a tad bit salty even with rinsing the beans well before using. I’ll try again with a low sodium bean. We may be overly sensitive to salt though since we have been cutting back. Thank you for a great, easy recipe!!
I just made this for the two of us that are stuck at home because of the virus. It is delicious! And so fast and easy! 3 couples are getting together for a Zoom cocktail party today, and I’m certain they will be jealous when we show them what we’re eating with our drinks. Lol! I’ll have to promise to serve it when we all can be together again. Thanks for a great recipe!
