White Bean Aioli

This is one of the foods that I will make for a party appetizer, afternoon snack or part of (ok, the whole part) a lazy dinner! A simple and delicious protein source too. It’s best to make some homemade sourdough (rosemary is extra tasty) bread or pick up some as fresh as possible. GF breads also work well grilled or toasted.

Juice from 1-2 fresh lemons, or to taste

Fresh ground black pepper and salt to taste

Bean Aioli:

Simmer oil and garlic in a small pan until garlic has softened but not browned.

Blend beans in food processor until smooth. Add oil and garlic mix, lemon juice, salt and pepper and blend until very smooth.
