I’m thrilled to be part of the guest posting squad for Lauren which will hopefully allow her to get all the rest she needs to heal quickly!
For those of you who don’t know me – my name is Rose; I am the author of The Clean Dish, a “real food” blog where I share my favorite grain free, gluten free and mostly vegan recipes. All made from scratch!
I’m a German gal, born and raised in the mountains outside of Frankfurt, Germany. Even though I have lived in the US for almost six years, I still feel like the new kid in town most days. Blogging has helped me to connect with like-minded people like Lauren; I have been reading her blog for quite some time and I just adore all the healthy recipe she shares with us week after week!
On that note, I am bringing you one of my current faves: Roasted Garlic White Bean Dip. It’s so creamy and flavorful, I just can’t get enough of it! Having said that, you have got to love garlic. Not like but be madly and passionately in love with it. Which I am. It’s safe to say I am down right addicted to garlic! The flavors blend so well together; just dip your veggies or spread some of this Roasted Garlic White Bean Dip on your favorite crackers to enjoy a truly healthy snack!
