Healthy White Bean Dip

When you think of a summer BBQ or cocktail hour, the first thing that comes to mind is no usually healthy eating options! We love having very simple and fresh appetizers on hand, that way you don’t fill up on too many salty chips or rich potato salad!


This White Bean Dip is bursting with so much flavor, you’ll be shocked to learn it’s actually quite healthy! Our dip gets its tanginess from a dash of vinegar and a little reduced fat cottage cheese. Serve it with summer fresh vegetables and you have got yourself a winning ‘skinny’ summer appetizer!

 

Ingredients
  • 2/3 cup reduced-fat 2-percent cottage cheese
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • One 15.5-ounce can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons good quality olive oil
  • Pinch smoked or sweet paprika
  • Chopped chives, for garnish
  • Crudité and toasted pita for dipping
Directions

Combine the cottage cheese, vinegar, thyme, beans, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a food processor. Puree until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Chill 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Transfer to a serving bowl and drizzle with the olive oil, sprinkle with the paprika and garnish with chives. Serve with fresh sliced vegetables and crackers.
