The Easiest Gluten-Free Dip with White Beans, Rosemary, and Grilled Artichoke

The easiest Gluten-Free dip is refreshing and is very easy and quick to make. I love using pantry staples like white beans, flavorful rosemary, and artichokes. It’s light and if served with Norwegian Crispbread is an excellent addition to any summertime entertaining!

We all need that last minute dip to throw together as your guests are arriving. The is the easiest Gluten-Free dip. All the ingredients go into the food processor, and with a whirl, you have a tasty dip. If you are like me, I love to keep simple ingredients on hand, like, canned cannellini beans, jarred artichoke hearts, garlic, lemons and fresh rosemary (from the garden, of course).

I have an obsession with rosemary, and I am always looking for ways to use it in my recipes and at home. It also has many health benefits. Rosemary is from the mint family. It is an excellent source of iron, calcium, and vitamin B-6 for your skin.

Here is a link to more information on rosemary on my website:

I will soon share a few more blog posts of my favorite recipes using rosemary. For example, Rosemary Pine Nut Bars, Cranberry Relish with Rosemary, Grilled Salmon with Orange Rosemary Sauce, and many more.

A true match made in heaven is to serve this creamy, easy dip with Trader Joe’s Gluten-Free Norwegian Crispbread. The made-in-Norway Gluten Free Crispbread will be an excellent addition to your everyday diet. Its ingredients include sunflower, sesame, and flax seeds; oat flakes; rice bran; potato fiber; and a few other straightforward additions, like salt and a touch of honey.

With 4g of protein and 3g of fiber per cracker, I could live off of these! They’re mildly salty and seedy — with a coarse, crumbly, oh-so-gratifying crunch. Here are the links to purchase on Trader Joe’s and Amazon.
