Cannellini beans are incredibly soft when cooked, which is why they lend themselves so perfectly to dips. Here, the somewhat bland beans are puréed with garlic and lemon juice — then, for a major flavor boost, topped with pan-fried fresh mint. (And does this dip ever turn out flavorful!)
Serve this robust dip with fresh bread slices, croutons, crackers, endive and radicchio Treviso leaves, or raw vegetable sticks. It makes for a sensational hors d’oeuvre or antipasto.
On a cold winter’s night, nothing warms you up quicker than a hot bowl of chili. In Kretschmer’s version, lots of vegetables, wheat germ, and beans substitute for meat. Take the leftovers to work with you and warm them in the microwave for a healthy, filling meal.

Starch from the cannellini beans helps to create a creamy, thick sauce with the chicken stock, and will make you think as if you're enjoying something indulgent. For a healthier version of this pasta, skip the sausage and add another vegetable such as onions or a spicy pepper.
