Every Monday on our Instagram stories, we share a super-easy, 7-ingredients-or-less recipe. Follow us for a new episode each week!
Ever since we discovered it, this dip has been our go-to app for gatherings, game days, and life in general. Since it calls for a purée of white cannellini beans, garlic, and vegetable stock instead of cream cheese and other full-fat ingredients, it's a little healthier than usual. You can't taste the difference and you get protein in every bite!
Still, this recipe doesn't skimp on any of the other classic ingredients: There's plenty of cheese, spinach, and artichokes. You and your guests are going to love it—and feel zero guilt when you polish off the whole thing.
