I found this great recipe from an old Canadian Living magazine.
If you have a food processor, this spread is super easy and fast to throw together. I used white kidney beans since I could not find cannellini beans.
This spread is much like a hummus consistency. Pack up some chopped up veggies and some pita and enjoy a lunch full of protein and fibre.
1 1/2 cups broccoli florets
1 can (540ml) cannellini beans or white kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup shredded old cheddar cheese
1 clove garlic, minced
3 Tbsp olive oil
3 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp each salt and pepper
9 cups vegetable crudités (baby carrots, celery, sweet pepper)
3 whole grain Greek-style pitas, cut into wedges
1. In a saucepan of boiling salted water, cover and cook broccoli until tender-crisp, about 2 minutes. Drain and chill in cold water, drain well. Transfer to food processor.
2. Add beans, cheddar cheese, garlic, oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper; purée until smooth. To take along, divide dip, vegetables and pitas among resealable containers.
