Recipe ReDux: Hazelnut White Bean Dip [sponsored]

I received free samples of Breton Gluten Free Original with Flax and Breton Gluten Free Herb and Garlic from Dare Foods Incorporated mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Dare Foods Incorporated and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

Since Dare Foods was challenging us to make something healthy that incorporated Breton Gluten Free crackers (Original with Flax or Herb and Garlic) and I’d only used the Herb and Garlic thus far, I decided to add to the crackers and dip theme. This one’s packed with protein and healthy fats. :]

Hazelnut White Bean Dip

-Breton Gluten Free Original with Flax crackers
-1/4 cup light coconut milk
-1 can great northern beans, drained + rinsed
-3/4 cup hazelnuts, toasted
-4 cloves garlic, minced
-2 tsp orange zest
-2 tbsp orange juice
-pink himalayan salt, to taste
-freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1) Heat a large pan on the stove (medium-high heat). Once it’s hot, add a single layer of nuts. Stir frequently until nuts turn golden-brown. Remove from heat.
2) Add beans, garlic, coconut milk and nuts to food processor and process until smooth.
3) Add orange juice, orange zest, salt and pepper to the mix. Pulse until well combined.
4) Serve with Breton Gluten Free Original with Flax crackers. :]
