REC: Cannellini Bean Paté

I make this once a week and split into 2 servings for veggie dippin!

8 oz can of cannellini beans
1-2 garlic cloves, peeled
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon chopped fresh herbs (I use parsley or dill) or a spring onion
salt and pepper to taste

Throw the beans in a food processor with the garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and vinegar. Whiz to make a smooth purée. Thin with water as needed. Add fresh herbs or spring onion and season to taste with salt & pepper.

I usually add 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin to give it some extra flavor!!!

Yummmmmmo!

I have added Italian canned tuna to this before and that was good, too!

Thanks for posting this, it looks really good. I have a great deal of dried cannellini beans I keep pushing around, in favor of other beans. Glad to have this recipe to help me use some!

This recipe was great! Last week I made a 3 cup batch for DH's sandwiches and he has reqested it for this weeks lunches also. In my first batch, I seem to have lost track of how much garlic I was adding, and it was quite garlicky, the cumin was completely squopped.
