So I have to give a plug to the company that I get my olive oils from -- The Olive Press. The oils are marvelous -- worth the splurge. These are not oils for frying in -- these are oils to savor, to dip your crusty bread into, to drizzle over fresh greens. The Olive Press also includes recipes in the box with my shipment, so last night I tried making (very last minute) the Garlicky White Bean Dip to take to a gathering of some close friends.
Prep time - minimal
Nice enough to bring to someone's house? Yes!
Would I make it again? Absolutely!!
Gluten free? Yes
My grade - A
So, without further ado...
Garlicky White Bean Dip
- 1 15-oz can white beans (I used cannellini)
- 2 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
- 3 tbsp high quality olive oil (I used The Olive Press Master Blend EVOO)
- 1 small bunch flat-leaf parsley
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- salt and pepper to taste
