White Bean Dip

You don't always have to have the traditional salsa, guacamole or spinach dip for parties. It's nice to offer a healthier alternative and that's exactly what this White Bean Dip does.  I always like to have a few guilt-free dishes to offer to the more conscientious eaters in my family, but I still want to  please everyone else.  I used some yogurt in this bean dip and some lovely cumin to give it a Mediterranean flavor. Eat it with pita chips or any vegetable and enjoy.

2 (15oz) cans cannellini beans drained and rinsed well
1/3 cup of Greek yogurt
1-2 cloves of garlic grated
1-2 Tbs of olive oil
2 tsp of cumin powder
1tsp of lemon juice or red wine vinegar
red chili flakes to taste
salt to taste

Put all ingredients into food processor and blend until smooth. Taste for seasoning and adjust to taste. Serve with pita chips or sliced vegetables.  Enjoy.

Thanks for this recipe so I can give it a try!
