Getting tired of your hummus and guac? Me neither. But, if you’re looking for another nutrient dense dip option, try this protein-packed bean dip. Super easy to make, delicious with veggies or pita, or as a spread in a lettuce wrap.
Cannellini beans are high in protein providing 8 grams per half cup! They are also a great source of soluble and insoluble fibre, which is good for cholesterol and blood sugar. They also contain a good amount of B vitamins including B12, iron, potassium and zinc!
Makes 10 – 3 tbsp servings
- 2¼ cups BPA-free canned cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
- ⅓ cup chopped fresh dill
- ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 lemon zested and juiced
- 1-2 large cloves of garlic
- sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
- veggies of choice
Put all your ingredients (except for the veggies) in a food processor and blend until smooth, somewhere around 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and enjoy with sliced veggies or anything else that tickles your fancy.
