Enjoy this cheesy dip flavored with tahini paste to add hints of Middle Eastern cuisine! Serve with fresh vegetables for a tasty appetizer that’s ready in 15 minutes.
cup reduced-fat cottage cheese
cup crumbled reduced-fat herb-and-garlic feta cheese
tablespoons sesame tahini paste (from 1-lb jar)
tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
teaspoon garlic salt
lb fresh cauliflower florets (2 cups)
lb fresh broccoli florets (2 cups)
lb fresh asparagus spears, trimmed
In blender, place dip ingredients. Cover; blend on high speed until smooth. Spoon into small bowl. Cover; refrigerate at least 15 minutes to blend flavors.
Meanwhile, in 4-quart Dutch oven, heat 2 quarts water to boiling. Add vegetables; cook about 2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain; rinse with cold water. Pat dry.
Serve dip with vegetables.
To save time, serve the dip with veggies-- try carrots, jicama, green or red bell pepper strips, or celery.
The dip keeps well--you can make it a day or two ahead of time, if you like.
