Get ready for the ultimate Fall dip that's loaded with flavor and is the perfect special addition to any snack board! I whipped it up for a Thanksgiving Snack Board, and it was absolutely delicious with every single thing that I dipped into it... crackers, apples, cheese, nuts, you name it! I couldn't get enough! (PS, it's even better if you have all of those items together - a cracker topped with some pumpkin dip, then a slice of apple or pear, a slice of manchego cheese, and a walnut on top - so yummy!) It's the ideal appetizer for the season and is such a welcome change to the typical bowl of hummus that tends to be the go-to dip on every crudité board. It's sweet yet savory, made with just a few simple ingredients, and can be whipped up in a matter of minutes!
1 1/2 tbsp grass-fed butter (like Kerrygold)
5 fresh sage leaves, roughly chopped
1 (15-ounce) can white beans (also called cannellini beans), drained and rinsed
3/4 cup pumpkin puree (pure pumpkin, not the pumpkin pie mix)
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp 100% maple syrup
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Salt & pepper to taste
Pumpkin seeds & fresh sage for garnish
Makes about 1 1/2 - 2 cups of dip and serves 6-8 (feel free to cut the recipe in half if entertaining a smaller group, or make the full batch and save extras in the fridge for about a week!).
Note: If you'd rather skip the butter, you can just stick with olive oil and warm the oil in a pan on the stove until hot but not smoking, remove it from heat, and then add the sage leaves, and once cooled, pour the oil/sage into the food processor. Both will work, but the browned butter adds a little extra nutty flavor!
Seriously the most delicious Fall dip right!? Can't wait to hear how much you love it!
