What I Made Wednesday {White-Bean Dip}

New Year's Eve is on its way and whether you're partying-down amongst a crowd or enjoying a more intimate soiree, you're sure to get hungry waiting for that ball to drop. As a precursor to midnight's gift of a new year, I hope you try this healthy and tasty snack. It's a bit like hummus, but, and I know I'm in the minority, I'm not a fan. Hummus has a bit of a taste that bites me back, but this White-Bean Dip copies the same texture and tastes a bit more mild than its pita-dipping cousin. Packed with protein, this is a great snack for a healthier new year!

What You'll Need
1 - 15 ounce can of Cannellini beans
3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
2 or 3 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar (to taste)
1 teaspoon Dried Rosemary
Salt and pepper, to taste

What You'll Do
Open the can of beans, drain, and rinse. Pour the beans into a food processor.
Add the olive oil and red wine vinegar to the processor.







Add the rosemary. Salt and pepper to taste.
Turn on the food processor for about 40 seconds or until blended smooth.

What You'll Need to Know to Finish
Pour the dip into a serving bowl and refrigerate for about an hour. This will help the dip blend flavors and become less runny. Serve this dip with pita chips and thinly sliced radishes.





What is your snack pick for New Year's Eve?
