Here’s a fairly mild dip that provides protein and fiber. Serve with corn chips, carrot sticks or bell pepper strips. You can also use it as a sandwich spread. Also, it's best made with lime juice, but lemon juice works in a pinch.

1 small garlic clove
1 (15-oz.) can black beans, rinsed and drained
