Bean Dip with a Vegetable Face
- 1 (14-ounce) can white beans
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 tablespoon fresh oregano leaves
- 1/4 cup peeled, diced tomatoes (the canned kind)
- Carrot sticks
- Celery sticks
- Bean sprouts
- Cherry tomatoes
- Broccoli florets
In a food processor, combine beans, lemon juice, cumin, oregano and tomatoes and puree until smooth. Thin with a few tablespoons of water, if necessary, to get desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon into a large shallow bowl and smooth with a spatula.
Stick carrot, celery sticks and sprouts around the edges of 1/2 of the bowl to make "hair". Use tomatoes, broccoli, and cauliflower to make a face.
