Garlic Bean Dip
This savory bean dip will satisfy even the most ardent garlic lover and beats store-bought versions both in flavor and nutrients.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Makes 12 servings (about 1-1/2 cups)
|1||can (15-1/2 ounces) pinto or black beans, rinsed and drained|
|1/4||cup pimiento-stuffed green olives|
|4-1/2||teaspoons lemon juice|
|1/2||teaspoon ground cumin|
|Assorted fresh vegetables and crackers|
- Place garlic in food processor; process until minced. Add beans, olives, lemon juice and cumin; process until well blended but not entirely smooth.
- Serve with vegetables and crackers. Garnish, if desired.
To save time, buy fresh vegetables, such as carrots and celery, already cut up from the produce section of the supermarket.
The spice cumin is widely used in Middle Eastern, Asian and Mediterranean cooking. It is available in seed and ground form and adds a nutty flavor to dishes.
