Ingredients

15 oz can cannellini beans (white kidney beans)
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
1 garlic clove (or a Tbsp chopped)
Fresh Basil Leaves (optional)
salt and pepper


Throw everything in the food processor until it's smooth.


When I have a bumper crop of basil I look for lots of ways to use it up.


Throw a few big leaves into the food processor with everything else, it adds a nice herbaceous note.


Add salt and pepper to taste.


If you want it thicker, cut back the oil, it you like it smooth add more oil.


This is awesome with good pita bread, especially with Baked Herbed Pita Wedges (see my recipes). Also makes a great dip for a veggie crudite.

Notes

Mmmm! This is my favorite snack and appetizer. I like to call it Italian Hummus. It's so easy and goes together in about 4 minutes using a food processor. It's so good for you too.

A dash of local for every season
