Makes 1 1/2 cups
Great with grilled or roasted vegetables, or on sandwiches, also great on 'burgers'. I served on the Broccoli-Millet Croquettes. So so so so GOOD!
1 (15oz) can navy beans
2 tbsp lemon juice (about a 1/2 lemon)
1/2 tsp salt
Several pinches of freshly ground blanck pepper
1/4 olive oil
6 cloves garlic, chopped
Combine the beans, lemon juice, salt, and pepper and puree until smooth scraping down the sides of the bowl to get everything.
Preheat a small pan over low heat. Cook the garlic in the olive oil for about 3 minutes. You want to gently heat it, not brown it.
Add the garlic and oil to the bean mixture and puree. Taste for salt, pepper, and lemon, and adjust to your liking.
Cover and refrigertate unitl ready to use.
