Harissa White Bean Dip

My name is Alisa the recipe developer and food photographer behind The Delicious Spoon.  My focus is on healthy family recipes that are easy to make tasty treats.

This Harissa White Bean Dip is incredibly easy to make and is all done in one blender for less mess!  Similar to a hummus this white bean dip is loaded with flavour and spices courtesy of the harissa paste used. The harissa offers a mellow spiciness that isn’t overpowering but adds just the right amount of heat to have you wanting more. Serve alongside some baked pita chips for an easy healthy snack or appetizer.
