When my mother told me she makes this recipe for lunch every day I didn't think it sounded too delicious. But then she made it for me and... yummy... the combination of flavors is surprisingly delicious and very healthy! Eat as a snack or in larger portions for lunch.

Skinny Cheese Fondue
Very Good 4.2/5
(35 ratings)

This is a slimmed down version of one of my favorite party foods--cheese fondue. Mashed cannellini beans slim down the recipe but keep a thick and luscious texture!

This is the most basic of the spreads. You can find a variation of this recipe in almost any grocery store, but 95 percent of them are made with either olive oil or tahini (sesame paste), which pushes up the fat content. Your best bet is to take three minutes and make a batch on Sunday that will last you for the week.

Smoky from the cumin with a hidden serving of vegetables, this dip is equally delicious in a burrito as it is spread on tortilla chips.
