White Bean Dip

Need an easy appetizer to bring to your holiday parties this year?  Try this white bean dip… it’s easy, delicious, and is a great winter comfort food.  The pureed beans create a creamy texture, and the fresh rosemary adds that winter-evergreen feel.  I think it tastes best served with pita chips and a drizzle of olive oil on top.  Enjoy!

Place the beans, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice and rosemary in a food processor. Process until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides if necessary.  If the mixture is too thick, add in some of the liquid from draining the beans.  Add the salt & pepper, mix for another couple seconds then give it a taste. Adjust the S&P as needed.
