Food Tip Love hummus but looking to mix things up? Surprise your taste buds with our delicious alternative: sun-dried tomato and bean dip.
Why should chickpeas have all the fun? For a just-as-yummy sandwich spread or dip, whip up our Sun-Dried Tomato and Cannellini Spread, made with rich, buttery white beans, fresh garlic, basil, olive oil and, of course, sun-dried tomatoes. It’s wonderful on sandwiches, whole-wheat crackers or even as an hors d’oeuvre atop endive leaves. Or pack some in your lunch bag with fresh, cut veggies for the perfect p.m. meal or afternoon snack. With their sweet-tart flavor, sun-dried tomatoes pack a wallop as well. Just a one-ounce serving delivers a generous supply of vitamin C, iron, potassium and magnesium. Magnesium relaxes blood vessels, enhances gut function, helps keep blood pressure down, and strengthens bones, among other things.
