1/1 Photo of Tuscan White Bean Dip
Expat in Holland's Note:
I was looking for a heathy appetizer to take to a party and decided a good garlicy white bean dip would be the choice. A friend had sent me a recipe for a bean dip. I tried the dip and then tweaked it to my taste. This ultimately should be served on pita chips, however not being able to buy those in Holland, I chose to use plain salted tortilla chips. My recipe was a complete success at the party. People loved it and not a drop was left. At first when told of the dip my husband was skeptical of a healthy bean dip. However he raved about it as well.
