Ingredients

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 14 oz cannellini beans drained and rinsed (400g)
  • 1/2 cup Taleggio cheese cut into cubes (90g)
  • 1/2 cup mascarpone (125g)
  • 1/3 cup cream (80ml)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper to season

Instructions

  • Rinse the beans in warm water for a couple of seconds until warm, alternatively warm up in a skillet (frying pan).
  • Add the beans, taleggio, garlic, cream, mascarpone and a pinch of salt and pepper to a food processor and blitz on high speed until silky smooth.
  • If the mixture looks grainy keep on blitzing until smooth.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl and serve with crackers, breadsticks or veggies.

Notes

  • You need to warm up the beans either by rinsing them in warm water for a few seconds or warming them up in a skillet (frying pan). It helps create a super smooth and creamy texture.
  • If you feel the dip is too thick then add a splash of warm water (around 1 tbsp) to help loosen it.
  • Feel free to adapt it with another cheese of your choice just make sure it's a soft cheese.
  • Store leftovers in the fridge and bring to room temperature before serving, you may need to blitz again with a splash of warm water or warm up in a skillet.
