  • 15 oz Cannellini Beans
  • 1 cup Baby Spinach
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp Tahini
  • 2 tbsp 100% Lemon Juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic clove
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 Plum Tomato

DIRECTIONS

1 TIP: You can use brewed, unsweetened green tea in place of water.
2 Add the beans, spinach, tea, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper to a food processor or blender. Cover and purée. Transfer to a serving dish, cover, and chill until ready to serve.
3 Remove the pulp from the plum tomato and finely dice.
