Perfect White Bean Dip

In Main Courses, Snacks, vegan on April 4, 2010 at 8:26 am

This dip is incredibly simple and so tasty.  Smooth, creamy texture that goes great with veggies, chips, pitas, etc!  Can you believe it has a total of 4 ingredients!?

Ingredients

1 1/4 cups cooked small white beans (I used navy beans)

1 1/2 cups vegetable stock

2 cloves garlic

1/4 tsp salt

Combine beans, stock, garlic, and salt in small pot.  Simmer covered on stove for 40 minutes.  Remove from stove, let sit with cover on while you prep the rest of your ingredients

Dippers

-peppers, carrots, “Food Should Taste Good” gluten-free chips (I had Sweet Potato flavour!), homemade pita bread, kale chips..

In the next photo, you can see the kale chips..

Ingredients

2 tsp extra virgin olive oil

3-4 stalks of kale

1 tbsp lg flake nutritional yeast

dash of sea salt

Tear off kale leaves from stalks.  Arrange on baking sheet and spray with extra virgin olive oil (I use a “Mighty Mist” sprayer that I can refill vs. the aerosol can sprays).  Sprinkle nutritional yeast and salt on kale.  Bake at 400F for 1o-15 minutes depending on how crispy you want your kale. Enjoy!
