White Bean Sriracha Dip

White Bean Sriracha Dip is the best {slightly} spicy, flavorful snack you’ll make this winter!ย 

Did you guys survive the snow?!? On Friday in Nashville we got the biggest snowstorm the city’s seen in something like 13 years! We got about 7-8 inches of snow, but parts of the Nashville area got 9-10. So Ben and I have been snowed in since Thursday night…and today is the first day we’ve been able to really get out, except for a few random walks and the afternoon we spent building a snowman! ๐Ÿ™‚

And can I admit that I frankly enjoyed being snowed in? ๐Ÿ™‚ I got to read a lot, watch tv/Netflix, bake a “just because” cake, work on the nursery, and just lounge about. I think I would be fineeee being snowed in for awhile longer if I had more groceries. ๐Ÿ™‚ #introvertalert But alas, the sun has been shining and temperatures are rising to melt the snow away… so back to reality!

If there are two recipe categories that I need to improve in my life, they are appetizers and beverages. I’m not sure why those types of recipes are so hard for me exactly… probably because I don’t make them very often. When I need an appetizer, I have a few go-tos… and some are super simple, like cheese and crackers, veggies and dip, or the like. As for beverages, those always seem way too complicated to use a recipe for, you know? I mainly drink things like coffee, tea, milk, juice, and a whole lotta water. So I’m not really the best person to ask about what to drink. Ha! But let’s get to the subject of the day: this awesome appetizer! Yup, if you need a new, interesting appetizer to make this winter, perhaps for a certain football game coming up soon, you will certainly want to check this one out! White Bean Sriracha Dip is just the ticket for a slightly spicy, flavorful, and unique dip.

It’s perfect with crackers or pita chips or veggies… so no matter what you have on hand, or what you want to serve it with [healthy or not], you’ll be satisfied. ๐Ÿ™‚ This dip was somewhat reminiscent of hummus, but with white beans. It’s always fun to try something new! If you don’t like much spice, just use less Sriracha. There’s tons of other flavors in this dip: sesame, curry, soy sauce, cinnamon, cilantro, lemon… and the Sriracha just enhances them. But they’d shine on their own! Regardless of your tolerance of spice, this Asian-inspired dip is divine! Hope you love it as much as we did. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. What a delicious-sounding dip… Sriracha makes everything fabulous! I love being snowed in, too, but after last winter in Boston, I’m glad someone else got to experience it! Though 7-8 inches would definitely not snow us in here ๐Ÿ™‚
