Healthiest Kale-Arugula Bean Dip


When my oldest son studied abroad in Australia, one of his go-to snacks was a premade bean dip. He described it as loaded with greens and flavor. I decided to surprise him the other day and tried to recreate a taste that I never experienced. With the help of Ethan's memory detailing the flavors, I created Healthiest Kale-Arugula Bean Dip. I started with cannellini beans and added lots of kale, arugula, sunflower seeds, and a few other ingredients. After a whirl of the food processor and some tweaking, we had a richly flavorful and creamy dip. My son loved it and said that this was just like he remembered.
