bean dip

One way to get your little foodies to eat vegetables: a good dip. And by “good” I mean anything that’s not ranch dressing or ketchup.

This dip is fabulous. Why I’m a fan:

  • Dip can be made in literally less than 5 minutes.
  • We usually have all of the ingredients in the pantry.
  • Three out of four children love it.

And if I happen to make this for you, I promise not to drag my finger through it.

When the veggies were gone (in about 10 minutes), we made pita chips: split and quarter whole wheat pitas, brush with olive oil, sprinkle with kosher salt, and toast.
