Diabetes Cookbook for Dummies®
by Alan L. Rubin, Fran Stach, Denise C. Sharf
Here's a great dip that takes advantage of a well-stocked pantry. Add fresh baby spinach leaves during Step 1 to boost your vitamins and leafy greens quotient. Delicious!

Preparation time: 10 minutes, plus 3 to 4 hours of chilling time
Cooking time: 5 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
 

INGREDIENTS

    Nonstick cooking spray
    1/2 cup chopped onions
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 can (15 ounces) cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
    1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh sage
    1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
    1 tablespoon water
    1/8 teaspoon salt
