Red Bean Dip

This past weekend we had almost spring-like weather and took advantage of it with some walks and park time.  Kaiden is still loving the swings and slides and walking around on the path.  I love seeing my boys walking together. It warms my heart.

This weekend I cooked up a batch of red kidney beans to use in a salad and decided to make a dip/spread that would be Kaiden friendly.  He is going through a phase where he has decided he doesn’t like to eat whole beans.  I’m not sure if it’s the texture or the skin on the beans, he just wont do it. He will eat mashed beans on toast or mixed into couscous balls.  A quick and delicious red bean dip arrives to save the day.  And it’s savoury enough for mom & dad too!

No big recipe was needed as it is super easy.  Add cooked red beans into a food processor with garlic powder, chili powder, a bit of olive oil, and a touch of salt. Mix. Add in water to thin out the dip to your liking.  This comes together easily and is extremely tasty.  Try it spread on a piece of toast with cream cheese underneath.  Amazing.

I’m hoping the weather warms up soon as I really need to get out and run soon.  My body misses it!
