GARLIC DILL BUTTER BEAN DIP

This 5-minute Mediterranean dip is a great way to switch up your trusty hummus. It's so versatile you can use it 3-ways! Serve it up as an appetizer, salad dressing or on a veggie sandwich in place of mayo. V, GF, oil-free.


Ingredients:


1 (15 ounce) can butter beans, rinsed and drained (or any white bean)

2-4 tablespoons ice cold water (see note)

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Zest from ½ lemon

2 tablespoons tahini

3 medium garlic cloves

1 tablespoon dill weed

2 teaspoons dijon mustard

¼-½ teaspoon sea salt, or to taste

Freshly ground black pepper


Method:

Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and combine until smooth and creamy.

Taste and adjust seasoning. Add more salt and pepper if desired - and more lemon juice for added brightness.



NOTE: You may need to add a bit more ice cold water depending on the consistency of your tahini.


VARIATIONS

  1. Sandwich spread: Add a smear to toasted whole-grain bread topped with veggies for a quick snack or meal in place of mayo.

  2. Dip: Serve it with whole-grain crackers and veggies.

  3. Dressing/sauce: Add a touch of water to 1 or 2 tablespoons of the dip to create a pourable consistency. Pour it over warm grain bowls and fresh salads.
