White Bean Dip

Not a huge fan of hummus? Try this one! Milder in taste, lighter in calories and so so good! Packs a ton of fiber and the flavor is outstanding. We dip ours with pita bread, soft tortilla shells, (my favorite: Wasa Toast or Melba Toast  and pretzels.

  • 2/3 cup reduced-fat 2-percent cottage cheese
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • One 15.5-ounce can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons good quality olive oil
  • Pinch smoked or sweet paprika
  • Chopped chives, for garnish
Combine the cottage cheese, vinegar, thyme, beans, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a food processor. Puree until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Chill 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Transfer to a serving bowl and drizzle with the olive oil, sprinkle with the paprika and garnish with chives.
