Spinach and White Bean Dip

One of the best ways for me to get my kiddos to eat their greens is to make spinach and white bean dip.
This recipe makes quite a bit, but you could easily cut it in half.

Spinach and White Bean Dip

1 lb bag dried great northern beans (cooked according to package directions)
16 oz bag fresh spinach
4 cloves of garlic
1 - 2 TB ground cumin
juice from 1/2 - 1 lemon 
1 TB balsamic vinegar
olive oil
water (if needed)

*Heat some olive oil in a large sauce pan over medium/high heat.  Add the garlic and spinach.  Cover and cook until spinach is wilted, stirring occasionally.  

*In a food processor, add your (drained and cooked) beans, cumin, lemon juice, vinegar, and salt.  Add the cooked spinach and blend until smooth.  If it seems too thick, add a little water, and drizzle in some olive oil while it is being blended.  Adjust the taste by adding more cumin, salt, vinegar, etc.
