"This spread has a long shelf life - it can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks - and can be pulled out for impromptu entertaining."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This spread is deliciously flavorful and inexpensive to make. It's especially good for those without a food processor. Try it on some crusty bread with a slice of havarti or swiss for lunch. (hint: white beans are called "Great Northern Beans" in the south... it took about 15 minutes in the bean aisle to figure that out!).
Definitely needs more oomph - I'd double spices, add some heat, like crushed red pepper. I like the concept, so I'm going to experiment with it.
I liked this spread and used it on various wraps. I did need to add some salt and extra garlic because I found it a little bland as written.
Really good. I added fresh chopped parsley which gave it a really fresh and clean flavor.
Very good and easy to make. I made this for a party and it was tough not to eat too much of it. Served with melba toast.
This is a good recipe, but next time I'll change some things. It did not come out thick like a spread, so I will reduce the liquid. Also, I will blend the beans in the food processor rather than do all that mashing. I thought that was a lot of needless work. Also, the garlic needs to be minced before putting it in the pan. It does not soften quickly enough to mash. The recipe needed a little salt, and I added a little extra garlic powder. Then it tasted good. This is a nice recipe to have on hand. Thanks.
I sauteed onion with the garlic, then added kosher salt and white wine. Then I blended it instead of using a potato masher. It turned out awesome!!!
This recipe is really good and super easy. Things I did... I sauteed the garlic in about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. I added the drained beans and sauteed them a little bit. I added a 1/4 cup of white wine. Warm through and then added to the food processor and pulsed. I also added about 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese in the processor. Used this on crusty Italian bread. I topped some with hot peppers to add a little heat and those were the best ones!!! Very easy recipe to make and different from the usual appetizers you put out. Thanks
