One word. YUM!
I love making fresh dips myself and I love this one that I have to share with you. I got the recipe out of this book, Small Plates. Yep, I have a foody blog too where I review cook books!
I love dips, they are so easy to make and you can use fresh ingredients and know what's going inside as you can add or delete. They are great for snacking, great for entertaining and even in sandwiches.
I made Cannellini & Artichoke Dip and here's there recipe. It's super easy, great for kids (if serving infants, don't use salt!)
400g cannellini beans (I prefer Eden Organics as their cans are BPA free)
4 artichokes hearts marinated in olive oil
2 tblsp of fresh, flat leaf parsley
1 fat glove of garlic (I would use half!)
grated zest and freshly squeezed juice from 1/2 lemon
sea salt and black pepper
To make the dip put all ingredients in a bowl of a food processor and whiz until just smooth.
Since I had received a bunch of crackers to check out from Kashi, all of them tasted so good with this!Healthy snacking is the way to go as I am part of FitMom!
We all need to make healthier choices so whole grains here I come.
