White Bean Dip
Recipe type: Snack
This dip is very similar to hummus but with a milder flavor, and is brightened by the lemon juice. For bolder flavor, substitute black beans and add a little cayenne.
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, chopped finely
- 1- 15.5 oz can white beans or great northern beans, drained
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons water
- Juice of 1 small lemon
- Place 3 tablespoons of the olive oil and the garlic in a skillet. Cook over medium heat. As soon as the garlic is fragrant, add the beans and salt. Heat through.
