Hi, I'm Diane Hoch from The Food Evolution. Today, we're going to be making healthy white bean dip. Actually, a health bean dip, but we're going to be using white beans, cannellini beans in fact, one of my favorites. We're going to be using cannellini beans, olive oil, garlic, fresh dill, lemon juice, some sea salt and a little paprika. Those are our simple ingredients. So, I will take the, the beans and I put the beans in here. You don't want your beans to be al dente when you're making a bean dip 'cause you want it to be creamy. I'm doing a clove of garlic and I minced it already; so, little garlic clove. If you put a whole clove of garlic in, it can leave some chunks and that's the reason that I minced it. We're going to go ahead and add some lemon juice to that and sometimes you can kick it up a little bit with the lemon juice depends on what you like. Olive oil, a really good quality olive oil. Don't be shy with olive oil. Some sea salt, this is a pink Himalayan sea salt. Sea salt has a lot of great trace minerals. And of course, we always have to have a fresh green when I'm talking about food, [Laugh], and that's fresh dill. I love dill. Dill is still a dark leafy green, phytonutrients, great energy, really good, fiber. Okay. So, I'm just going to take this, close it and we're going to pulse it up. So, about halfway through, I just take the little spatula and twirl it around. You know, you want to just kind of push it down a little bit so that you're getting a nice consistency and that looks really good. Healthy white bean dip is so good for you. It's high in protein, fiber, iron. Beans are really healthy. We don't eat enough of them. It's satiating snack too in the afternoon. You can put it in a little Tupperware, bring it to work with you, send it to lunch with your kids. This goes well with chickpeas, cannellini beans, pinto beans, try all different beans, it's a whole new world that you can open up to. A world of whole foods, real foods and better health.
