My friend Cathy from Noble Pig makes some delicious foods. She also has the gift to gab and is a Martha Stewart type.
She wraps gifts beautifully, makes her own wine, is building a vineyard, does sheet rock and dry wall, is a fabulous baker, has perfect holiday table settings, blah blah blah.
Well, I made her good looking white bean spread the other day and it was delicious! I think the addition of parmesan cheese and scallions really made it more special than your average white bean dip. Leave it to Cath to jazz it up.
Cathy's White Bean Dip
1 can of cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 chopped scallions
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 good olive oil
1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
2 garlic cloves (I used only 1, because I am not a fan of RAW garlic)
salt & pepper
Mix all ingredients and pulse in a food processor until smooth.
Drizzle with some good olive oil and garnish with chopped scallions and a sprig of rosemary!
The second time I made this dip I added frizzled shallots on top for crunch and served with endive spears! Delicious!
This would be a great dip to make for Super Bowl this weekend, a healthier alternative to the usual sour cream & Lipton onion soup dip (I know, I know, it's tradition!).
