This zesty, garlicky bean dip is as delicious as it is nutritious, and perfect for Olympics parties!
It’s actually a traditional ritual Ukrainian Christmas dish, but can be enjoyed any time of the year. Serve it hot as a side dish with a meal, or cold as a dip or spread on crackers or bread for an appetizer or snack.
For navy bean dip, you will need:
2 14 oz cans of navy beans
