      I love dips. 


      I love hummus (only the homemade kind though :). 


      I love guacamole and I love yummy spreads that can be put into wraps.  Oh and I love pesto.


      So I thought why now make of blend of all these delicious things into one incredible veggie dip!  The creaminess of the avocado and the flavor of the toasted walnuts make a divine combination.  There is a mildness to white beans that I absolutely love and what would any dip be without garlic!  Yum!



      Best Basil Bean Dip


      1 can of white beans (any variety will work), rinsed and drained

      1 large avocado

      1/3 cup of  toasted walnuts (just toasted them in a frying pan over medium heat until browned)

      3 gloves of garlic

      juice from 1/2 lemon (about 1 1/2 TBS)

      1/4 cup of fresh basil

      2 TBS olive oil

      1/2 tsp salt



      Combine all of the ingredients into a food processor or high-powered blender.  Simply pulse until it is smooth.

      Serve with veggies (carrots, jicama and red peppers shown here), your favorite chips or crackers.
