Marinated artichokes find a perfect relationship with White Navy beans. A sweet spot was achieved with just the right touch of Quebec Maple syrup. A buttery, smooth taste with a slight tang. Delicious and satisfying.

    This dip sounds exciting and has an interesting flavor profile. I would like to try it with Agave Nectar since it has a low glycemic index, thanks for sharing.

      Thanks for taking interest.
      I agree, that Agave does have a lower GI, and I'm sure it would taste fine.
      BTW, if you're interested in lowering the GI even more, try fine coconut palm tastes great as well.

      Have a great day and flavourful wishes,
