SPICY BLACK BEAN DIP

Man, it has been a week. Thankfully class is off this week and I'll get to catch up on work, terrible TV shows, and cooking (maybe). 

For the past few months I've been cooking up roasted veggie bowls with fish burgers for dinner. At the beginning of the week I'll roast a whole bunch of veggies, rehear them and add them to w bowl with fish, spinach, and hummus. 

I keep seeing this amazing bean dip on Instagram from my favorite foodies, but I cannot see to find it anywhere. So, I figured why not make my own! A great dip for veggies as a snack or for roasted vegetables at dinner, this flavorful dip also packs some great extra protein to keep you full!

Add this recipe into your food prep rotation- it comes together in no time!
