Recipe: White Bean Cilantro Dip. High in fiber and antioxidants.

White Bean Cilantro Dip

Cilantro is a rich source of many essential oils and antioxidants, including quercetin, a bioflavonoid that is commonly recommended during allergy season for anti-histamine support. Cilantro is also loaded with vitamins C, A and K. Per 100g (or a little over 1/3 cup) cilantro provides 45% of the RDA for vitamin C, and a whopping 225% and 258% of vitamins A & K respectively.
