Rosemary-Garlic White Bean Spread

Oxmoor House
Prep time 12 mins
Cook time 2 mins
Yield 8 servings (serving size: 2 tablespoons)
Use this flavorful high-fiber spread as an accompaniment to toasted baguette slices or as a dip for pita chips, carrot sticks, or cucumber slices. It also makes a terrific spread for pita sandwiches. If you don't have a food processor, simply mash the bean mixture with a fork; the spread will have a slightly chunkier consistency.

  • 1 (15-ounce) can Great Northern beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Rosemary sprig (optional)
