White Bean Dip

We usually have hummus or bean dip in our house. It’s a quick snack with rice cakes, pretzels, carrot/celery sticks. Dips make a great sandwich or wrap spread, simply add shredded carrots, spinach (or other green like arugula, baby kale etc) and a sprinkle of pumpkin or sunflower seeds

It’s also an easy appetizer, served with pita or corn chips or to dress it up, spread on toast squares or triangles with a sprig of herb of choice (pending the variation)

Beans are a pantry staple. A can of white beans can be a dip in 10 minutes.
