Default Spinach Dip

Recipe courtesy of Giada de Laurentis

Saute 2 cloves garlic, 2 bags baby spinach in 1T extra virgin olive oil. Rinse and drain 1 can cannellini beans. Process beans and spinach in food processor with 1 T lemon juice, 1 T extra virgin olive oil, 1 T balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper to taste.

This will be plenty for at least 4 adults.

Red, green and yellow peppers strips, carrot sticks, celery, zucchini and cucumber spears, jicama, raw green beans, and as a filling for hard boiled eggs are some of the ideas I can come up with.

thanks Cottage, for some reason I keep thinking that this dip might be too stringy for veggies. I will make it this weekend.
take care
Sophie

Sophie, I made it with Swiss chard (leaves only) which is stringier than spinach and it smoothed out well in the processor. I bet it could be made with frozen spinach as well. It's a keeper!
If served for four,
each serving = 171 cal., 4 g. fat, 23 carbs, 10 fibre and 12 protein.

Thanks for doing the nutritional breakdown, Ruth.
And cottage, stuffing eggs with it is a great idea!
Glad you chicks liked it too.

Thanks Schmoodle! The one chance I had to peak in here while at Mom's I saw this recipe. Passed it on to here right away - it's the perfect pre-dinner snack for my Dad Of course I'm trying it too!

I'm going to try this tomorrow! I also thought you had to avoid carrots on phase one?

I gave this a try. It tastes really good without the balsamic vinegar. I didn't prefer the taste with it my mom can eat that batch.
