This recipe is actually in The Green Diet (pg 64), but I made it the other day and was reminded how finger-lickin good it is. It is so easy and quick, it is a no-brainer when you have a family (Doug) that wants a snack while watching the NBA finals.
1 can (15 oz) cannelloni beans, rinsed and drained
1 Tbs extra-virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tbs fresh lime juice
3 Tbs sun-dried tomato pieces (4-5 pieces), I prefer packed in oil
1/4 cup water, or as needed
Place the beans, oil, garlic, lime juice, and sun-dried tomatoes in a food processor and process until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Slowly add a bit of the water and process into a smooth paste (if mixture is too thick, add more water). Taste for seasoning and add salt if desired.
Yield: 1 1/2 cups dip
