  • 2 (15-ounce) cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 2 to 4 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped rosemary

    Place beans and garlic in food processor and process until finely chopped. Add lemon juice to taste, olive oil, and rosemary. Process until smooth. If mixture is too thick, add oil or water, 1 tsp. at a time, until it reaches desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
