Italian white bean dip is made with one of my favorites, cannellini beans. These white beans are savory, versatile, and packed with protein and fiber to keep you feeling full and satisfied! A single serving of cannellini beans can also provide 20% of your daily recommended value of magnesuim, iron and folate. This is such an easy go to snack or appetizer when your pinched for time. I always have these ingredients on hand just in case I need a quick appetizer.
