Ready for a snack? Try this White Bean Spread! Pairing perfectly with fresh cut veggies and pita chips, this spread is a great alternative to other, more fatty, dips and spreads.

This recipe is definitely of the make-ahead variety. It really needs to be refrigerated for a day so the flavors of the beans, garlic, lemon and seasoning have time to meld and bloom into a flavorful combination.

After the flavors have reached their full potential, which should be about a day, pull this snack out to tide you over until you have time to make one of our delicious bean-centric dinner recipes!
