WHITE BEAN AND ROASTED RED PEPPER DIP(with Pita Triangles) courtesy of Smitten Kitchen
Tired of dips that were nothing but cream and large amounts of dairy fat, and bored by all of the white bean dips out there that were nothing but bean-swapped hummus, this one beats them all! Low-fat and or fat-free cream cheese work equally well in here, as does goat cheese or mascarpone. A sprinkle of chives makes it even prettier, but it will disappear quickly, with or without them.
1 15-ounce can of white cannelini or navy beans, drained and rinsed
1 small jar roasted red peppers, or about 1 cup, drained
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 clove garlic, minced
Juice from half a lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
Puree everything in a food processor until smooth.
Serve with baked pita chips.
