Spinach Cannellini Bean Dip
Try Donatella’s spinach cannellini dip for a healthy snack — just dip pita chips or raw vegetables!
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 (6-ounce) bag baby spinach roughly chopped
- 1 (15-ounce) can cannelloni beans, drained and rinsed
- 2 tbsp of freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon of died sage
- 1 teaspoon of rosemary
- In a medium skillet, heat 1/4 cup of olive oil until simmering.
- Add garlic, sage, and rosemary and cook over moderately high heat, stirring until fragrant and the garlic is just beginning to brown; about 1 minute. Add the beans and toss to coat.
- Transfer the cannellini beans into a food processor and add the chopped spinach. Add the water if too thick, season with salt & pepper and process to a fairly smooth puree.
- Transfer the dip to a small serving bowl and serve with pita chips or raw vegetables.
CHEF TIP: If the green color of the spinach is too much for your kids, just omit it! This dip is tasty even without. For a glamorous presentation, serve in my ceramic ramekins.
