Purple Beet & White Bean Dip with Dill

"Beans Beans the Magical Fruit…" If using a can of beans, I highly recommend Eden Brand since they do not use BPA in their cans.  If time allows it, soak beans overnight for maximum health benefits. This colorful dip is delightfully inviting, especially when served to someone who thinks the worst of beets...I bet you can change their mind with this one
