White Bean Cashew Dip

White Bean Cashew Dip

This delicious white bean cashew dip has a healthy secret: fiber!  So you can snack smart :)  Thanks so much to Laura Theodore, amazing vegan chef and author of the vegan cookbook, Jazzy Vegetarian Classics.

Chef’s Note: For a nut-free dip, replace the cashews with an additional can (15 ounces) of white beans. Start with 1 tablespoon water, (instead of 2) and add a bit more water, as needed to achieve the desired consistency. Creamy and low fat too!
