Tuscan White Bean Dip

Tuscans in Italy are affectionately called “mangia fagioli” or “bean-eaters” because many traditional, rustic, Tuscan recipes include the use of a variety of beans.

Cannellini beans are low in fat, high in protein, soluble fiber and a good source of B vitamins, biotin and folate. They are a great food choice for diabetics and heart disease patients as they help lower the LDL cholesterol and possibly protect against a variety of cancers.
