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
