Warm Cannellini Beans with Tahini Sauce
Looking for a new dip to try out? Give this Warm Cannellini Beans with Tahini Sauce a try! This bean dip is made with cannellini beans which have a mild and slightly sweet flavor that have a tender texture to them once they are fully cooked. The cannellini bean is very rich in fiber and high in protein.
To make this dip, you first heat Eden Selected Olive Oil in a skillet along with all the other spices for about a minute. Then you add the Eden Organic Cannellini Beans and tomatoes with the salt and pepper in the skillet for about 15 minutes. Finally, you make the Tahini sauce to put on top of the bean dip. To make this sauce all you have to do is combine the Eden Roasted Tahini with the lemon juice, garlic, salt, and water as needed. I like to eat this dip with some gluten-free bread.
