Caramelized Bean Dip

What’s great about bean dip is that it tastes good, easy make and guilt free! A few months back, I attended a wonderful superfoods cooking class at Ninety Acres Culinary Center in Peapack, NJ where we prepared some delicious dishes, one of which is this Caramelized Bean Dip!

Begin by adding 3 tablespoons of olive oil into pan on medium heat.  Add the onions and stir around on medium to low heat.

When you plan to make this dip last minute, you may have to use canned beans, but just a side note, I always recommend buying your beans dried and soaking them yourself overnight. If you need to buy the beans canned, buy organic.  Drain and rise the beans thoroughly.

Add the beans to the food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped.

Add the caramelized onions until a pureed mixture forms.

Make sure you have the appropriate amount of spices/herbs prepared for the dip (refer to recipe print out). Too much flavor to the below ingredients will kill the taste.

Add olive oil…

Herbs and spices…

Then check to dip for consistency. If its too dry, add a teaspoon of olive oil and a bit more lemon juice.  

You can get creative and serve this dip in a bell pepper just by cutting off the top of the pepper and scooping out the seeds inside.

Or place it neatly in a bowl..

Either way, your guests will thank you for this guilt free tasty dip! Enjoy 🙂
