Healthy And Fugal Dips For Summer

During Summer we tend to have more BBQ's, more gatherings of family and friends and lighter meals with more snacking.
These two dips are easy to make, frugal healthy very tasty.
You will need a food processor for the carrot dip but could get away with a stick blender for the bean dip.

Raw Carrot Hummus and Garlic and White Bean Dip

The raw carrot hummus is an Anabel Langbein recipe that you can find it here. Unless you are having a big party a half batch is plenty.  It is so tasty and improves with a few extra hours so make it a bit ahead of time.

Garlic and White Bean Dip

1 Tin of Cannellini Beans
1 Head of Garlic - Pre Roasted and peeled
1/4 Cup Chopped Mint
2 Tbs Olive Oil
2 Tbs Lemon Juice
1 Tsp Ground Cumin

Drain the can of beans and add all the ingredients to a food processor and blend.
Allow flavours to develop for at least an hour before serving.

NB I roast a few heads of Garlic when I have the oven on and then peel the cloves and store them in a jar covered in olive oil in the fridge.  They are great added to all sorts of dishes where you want some garlic flavour without the sharpness.
