Cannellini and Toasted Pignoli Spread

009White Bean and Toasted pignoli PD

Healthy and full of protein, this bean spread is hearty and tasty.

Not only does it make a great snack on flax crackers or garlic toasted baguette, it works well as a sandwich spread or on a veggie pizza.

I like to keep this in the fridge for a quick, go-to protein pick me up which is high in nutrients but low in calories.

This even works well on celery for a savory nosh.

I recently had this served with toast and wine sautéed onions! It was fantastic!

The sweetness of caramelized onion soaked in red wine with this savory spread was a meal in itself.

I would also garnish with roasted red pepper for a bruschetta style presentation.
