Bean Dip

bean dip

A healthy bean dip made with white beans and mukimame!

Need:

1 15 oz can Great northern beans (or any other white bean)

1 pkg 12 oz frozen bag of mukimame-shelled soybeans (found at Target)

1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

2 tsp minced garlic

1/4 cup grapeseed, coconut or olive oil

1/4 cup chopper nuts ( I used walnuts and pecans)

Drizzle of honey

Salt and pepper to taste

How to:

Steam your mukimame and then rinse with cold water-add to food processor

Rinse white beans and add to food processor

Add garlic, honey, Greek yogurt and salt and pepper to food processor

Start blending all in food processor and drizzle in the oil as it mixes

I would use this as a veggie dip or even a spread on toast or baguettes! I took mini peppers and stuffed them as part of my lunch today. It is a satisfying dip and tastes great too!

I am even going to try and emulsify it later this week and use it as sauce for pasta (kind of like an alfredo by adding ricotta cheese, butter and milk).

Enjoy friends!
