Roasted Red Pepper Veggie Dip

A great dip is a smart way to encourage yourself and your family to eat more veggies. What’s even smarter is when the dip itself contains a veggie! Roasted Red Pepper Dip contains, you guessed it, red peppers and also chickpeas.

Chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans) are technically a legume, not a vegetable, but this plant-based wonder is something you can feel great about snacking on. They are packed with protein! Just one ounce contains about 3 grams of protein. 

Did you know bell peppers contain more vitamin C than oranges? They’re also a good source of vitamin A and potassium and have healthy doses of fiber, iron, and folate.
