Roasted Red Pepper and Cannellini Bean Dip
The smoky-sweet flavor of roasted red peppers makes a perfect combination with creamy cannellini beans in this Mediterranean dip. It's similar to the Spanish classic romesco, making it a great addition to a tapas-style spread. Serve with crunchy veggies like carrots, zucchini, broccoli, and jicama for dipping.
