This is one of those recipes that I “whipped up” in 5 minutes, and I received several compliments after bringing it to a gathering, so I am posting on here for you today. This is a great spread, that looks like humus, and resembles the same ingredients as humus, but it is much milder. It can be enjoyed during fasting times, or, if you just enjoy white bean spread. You can serve this with sliced French bread, instead of butter, or with crackers, or vegetables. One can of beans usually gives you about 3 1/2 half cup servings, but you can also serve it at a gathering, and more people can enjoy it as an appetizer. Here we go…..
1 can Northern white beans (low or no sodium is best), rinsed
3 teaspoons vegetable oil if fasting, OR, you can use extra virgin olive oil if non fasting
fresh cracked sea salt to taste
fresh cracked pepper to taste
juice of 1/2 a lemon for less lemony taste, or juice of 1 lemon for more lemony taste
a few dashes of paprika
1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
a few drops of water to thin out your bean spread to the consistency you want (start with a tablespoon first)
immersion blender, or food processor
Mix all ingredients together, and blend into a paste. Spread on a plate, sprinkled with some paprika and oregano for garnish. That’s it. Simple, and delicious. 🙂 Enjoy, and please “like” my Facebook page for more recipes.
