1 Minute Tuscan White Bean & Sun-Dried Tomato Dip

Need a quick appetizer for those lazy summer evenings?  This healthy white bean dip literally takes a minute when you use Dorot pre-portioned, frozen herbs

Hooray for summer, right?!  I’m fortunate to live in a place where we only have “winter” for about 5 days a year, and when I say winter, it really means the high temps are in the high 50s or low 60s.  It was always my dream to live in a winter-less place when I got old-er and yep, that time is here!  The downside to living in the desert, of course, is summer – when the daytime temps hit the 115 degree range, and the weatherman informs me that it’s still 99 degrees at 10pm.  Yikes!  At least it’s a dry heat…


I have to confess, I don’t do a whole lot of cooking in the summer.  Salads rule most days, and any cooking takes place outside on the grill.  My favorite dinners are when I invite a few girls over, and we float in the pool, sip wine from my Govino wine glasses,  (Hello – they float!) munch on snacks and appetizers, and call it a meal.  Being an empty nester has LOTS of benefits!

One of my favorite short cut ingredients that always helps to save time and energy in the kitchen is Dorot frozen, pre-portioned herbs.  I love keeping them stocked in my freezer, because it always seems that when I need fresh herbs for a recipe, I’m either out, or they’re limp or moldy, or the ones in my garden are too dried out wilted from the heat and sun.

 

 

I love Dorot, because they do all of the chopping and portioning for you.  All you have to do is pop one or two out and into your recipe.  SO easy and convenient! I use them in everything from breakfast smoothie bowls, to crockpot recipes, to this ridiculously easy white bean dip that honestly takes just one minute to make.

Look for Dorot frozen herbs in your store’s freezer section.  I find them at Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s.
