Alexander loves hummus. We were going to make some today but when I saw a can of small white beans in the cupboard I decided we were going to make a white bean dip instead. He had no objection! He was happy to make anything as long as he could push the buttons on my Cuisinart Mini Prep!
I can of small white beans, rinsed and drained
2 cloves of garlic, minced or crushed
4 tbs. olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tbs. capers -- love the taste these added!
In a small food processor add all the ingredients and puree until smooth.
Chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour before serving.
Great with pita chips, toasted Italian bread, crackers or as a spread on good, bakery bread with lettuce, cucumbers and sprouts!
