Menu #3 will be here soon, but until then...

I would like to post some recipes from my dear friends. I will give a "shout-out" to one or more of my friends each day by posting some of their recipes right here on my blog. So....if you have a recipe you would like me to post, send me an email or leave a comment and I would love to post it for you! Can't wait to see all of the new recipes! :)

Recipe for Today: White Bean Dip (hummus wanna-be)
Shout-out: My friend, Kim Davidson (whom I also work with at SBTS)

White Bean Dip (hummus wanna-be)
19 oz white beans, drained and rinsed
1 T tahini
1 T olive oil
2 green onions (only the white and light green parts)
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1 large lemon - juiced - should be at least 3 tablespoons
Garlic (optional)

Mix in a food processor and eat with pita or veggies. Notice there is definitely not as much tahini or olive oil which makes this recipe healthier and it still has tons of protein. Enjoy!

Stay tuned for more "guest recipes" coming your way over the next few days!

The bean dip is great with fresh cucumber slices.
