30 oz canned cannellini beans*, drained-reserving 1 teaspoon of the liquid
3 cloves garlic
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons fresh parsley
2 tablespoons lemon juice
dash white pepper.
Pour the beans, garlic, bean liquid, olive oil, salt, pepper and lemon juice into a food processor or blender. Pulse until almost smooth. Add the parsley and pulse again until it forms a thick paste. Refrigerate or serve immediately.
*these are sometimes labeled as “white kidney beans”. You could also use navy beans or great northern beans.
This heat wave (it was 103F in the shade this afternoon!) is really cutting into my cooking/baking time. I had to make this dip so I had something more interesting to eat than leftover grilled steak or tuna salad for lunch. It’s so tasty I almost don’t miss cooking.
