Did you know that bones regenerate constantly throughout one's life?

Consuming milk products is important whatever your age. As the needs of the human body changes with age, so does the number of recommended daily servings.


Ingredients

1 can (19 oz / 540 mL) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/4 tsp (1 mL) clove garlic
1 cup (250 mL) packed baby spinach
1 cup (250 mL) shredded Canadian Havarti cheese
1/4 cup (60 mL) freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper or 
hot pepper sauce
1/4 cup (60 mL) water
Salt and pepper, to taste
Carrots or 
any other raw vegetables (celery, cauliflower, broccoli, peppers, etc.)
Variety of bread (mini-pita bread, nan bread, etc.)

Preparation

Use a food processor fitted with a metal blade to combine chickpeas, minced garlic and spinach. Pulse until chickpeas and spinach are finely chopped, scraping the sides of the bowl, if necessary. Add cheese, lemon juice and pepper and pulse until blended. Gradually add enough water to thin the dip to desired consistency. Transfer to a serving bowl.

For a warm dip, transfer to a small baking dish. Bake in preheated 350 °F (180 °C) oven or toaster oven for about 20 minutes or until warmed through.

Serve with veggies and breads for dipping.

Tips

For a warm dip : To microwave, transfer to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on Medium (50 %) power for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring once, or until warmed through.

The dip can be prepared, covered and refrigerated for up to 2 days. Add more water before serving if it gets too thick. Orange juice can be used in place of the lemon juice.
