CANNELLINI LEMON AND ROSEMARY DIP
Benefits: Bean dips are a great source of plant-based protein, fiber, and essential fats. Cannellini beans particularly contain a wealth of B vitamins, as well as iron, potassium, and zinc. Rosemary may help to boost memory, improve mood, reduce inflammation, relieve pain, protect the immune system, stimulate circulation, aid detoxification, protect from bacterial infections, prevent premature aging, and may help to heal skin conditions.
2 cups cooked cannellini or butter beans, well-drained. (Reserve a few beans for garnish)
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp. rosemary leaves
1 clove garlic
1 lemon juice and zest
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
salt and pepper
Blend the beans, oil, lemon juice, and zest, and garlic. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Top with a few beans, a drizzle of olive oil, cayenne pepper, and a few rosemary sprigs.
