From the Be Well Kitchen:
Herbed White Bean Dip Recipe

A friend of mine is an amazing cook and he whipped this up quickly for a snack one day. Once I tried it I knew I needed to get the recipe immediately! This dip is super easy to make and one of my favorite things to bring to parties or bbq’s for a healthy appetizer. It’s also great to have on hand in the fridge for a healthy snack. You can serve it with sliced veggies such as carrots, celery and peppers and/or gluten-free crackers, my favorite being Mary’s Gone Crackers.

This recipe is Cleanse-friendly, too!

  • 1–2 cloves garlic, sliced thin
