Sundried Tomatoes White Bean Dip

 
 

Do you know the true secret to creamy hummus-like dips? White beans!

The taste of white beans is a bit more subtle than chickpeas, but their texture provides the creamiest of all dips.

We love simple white bean dips with a few herbs, lemon, and olive oil. But sometimes I like to explore new combinations such as this summery version with semi-sundried tomatoes.

You can have this tasty dip as an appetizer, but also to complement a vegetarian meal, or to spread on toast or crackers.

 

Just a handful healthy ingredients

  • Semi-sundried tomatoes are just like tomatoes a great source of antioxidants, vitamins (K and C) and minerals such as potassium and magnesium. The carotenoid lycopene - abundant in tomatoes – is one of the most potent antioxidants among dietary carotenoids. Eating lots of tomatoes has been associated with a decreased risk of cardiovascular diseases and cancer.
  • White beans are an excellent protein source and are packed with important nutrients such as folate, zinc, iron, magnesium, and fiber. They help stabilize blood glucose and even prevent diabetes.
  • Lemons are an excellent source of vitamin C, and they’re quite high in vitamin B6, potassium, folic acid, flavonoids, and the phytochemical limonene, giving them high antioxidant and anticancer properties.
  • Extra virgin olive oil has remarkable health benefits. Here’s an interesting article if you want to learn more about it: 11 proven benefits of olive oil.
