Recipe: Renee's Favorite Bean Dip

White Bean Dip

19 oz. can of canelinii beans (drained)

2 cloves of fresh garlic or more depending on your garlic love

1/4 cup of olive oil

sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

With those trusty electric beaters again combine drained beans and beat until it forms a smooth paste. Add your good quality extra virgin olive oil until well incorporated. Add your pepper and salt to taste.
Great protein rich dip to help keep me satisfied. I always get the whole grain pitas. I take each round pita get a pizza cutter and cut into bite size triangles. I then brush a light coating of olive oil on each side sprinkle the tops with a little sea salt.
I have also experimented and also love putting a little bit of rosemary for a different taste. I then put on a baking sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven until crisp but not burnt. Time varies but you do need to watch closely. Very simple and yummy!
