You can never have too many great dip recipes, don’t you think? I often get stuck serving the same old hummus and guacamole, but every once in a while I like to change it up with something a little different and unexpected.
That’s why I LOVE this White Bean & Sun Dried Tomato Dip. It’s creamy, flavorful and super easy to make. It all starts with a little sautéed shallot and garlic. This is a simple way to add TONS of flavor!
Next, just throw everything into a food processor and blend together!
It really is as simple as that! I’ve partnered with Yves Veggie Cuisine to pair this dip with a protein packed appetizer. Yves Veggie Cuisine Kale & Quinoa Bites are a great snack alternative packed with veggies and an excellent source of Vitamins A and C!
Simply pop these bites into the oven for 10-15 minutes while you make the dip and you’ll have a great snack or appetizer that’s perfect for all your entertaining needs!
