Black Bean-Asparagus Dip


Black Bean-Asparagus Dip

My cousin Rachel and I made this recipe up on the fly, and it disappeared from the party in under 10 minutes!


* 3 cups cooked black beans (we used a combo of canned and dry), fork-mashed

* 1 onion, finely chopped

* 1 garlic glove, finely chopped

* 1 bunch of asparagus, finely chopped

* 1/2 cup fat free Greek yogurt

* 3 ounces of cheese (I don’t even know what kind we used), shredded

* 1 egg white

* spices to taste (we used garlic sea salt, basil, and cayenne)

* bread crumbs (any kind)

* olive oil


Preheat oven to 375.

Saute onions and garlic in olive oil. When tender, add asparagus and saute until bright green. Let cool.

In a small casserole dish, mix cooled and mashed black beans, yogurt, cooled saute mixture, spices, 1 ounce of the cheese, and the egg white. Top dish with the rest of the cheese and the bread crumbs. Bake for 30-45 minutes, until brown and bubbly on top. Serve with plain crackers or crunchy veggies.
