Recipe: Italian White Bean Dip
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. This is such a simple snack or appetizer to whip together when you’re short on time. I always have these ingredients on hand just in case I need a quick appetizer. This literally takes 5 minutes to throw together and tastes like you went to a specialty store!
