    1. 1
      Put the beans in the container of a food processor with 1 clove of the garlic and a healthy pinch of salt. Turn the machine on and add the 1/4 cup olive oil in a steady stream through the feed tube; process until the mixture is smooth. Taste and add more garlic if you like, then puree again.
    2. 2
      Place the mixture in a bowl and use a wooden spoon to beat in the rosemary, lemon zest, and remaining olive oil. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. Use immediately or refrigerate up to 3 days.

      This was very good and I'll definitely be making this again. I used dried rosemary (~ 3/4 teaspoon) and canned cannellini beans, and I chose to use 3 large garlic cloves. What a wonderful dip for spicy blue or red corn chips!! Thanks evelyn/athens for a new idea. Made for the FAMILY PICKS round of ZWT5, for the Bodacious Brickhouse Babes.

      This was simple and delicious. I used canned cannellini beans. I ate this with Galley Wench's "Pain De Provence (Herb French Bread)" I made this for ZWT5.

      I made this for the "Taste of Yellow" event - May 2009. This has a very "Mediterranean" taste. I love it!!! It's best to let sit overnight. At first the lemon was very overpowering to me. I usually eat dips with unsalted chips, crackers and vegetables that don't have "strong" flavors to them, so you can taste how delicious it is, but I found that this went very well with tortilla chips. The saltiness of the chips really pulled the flavors together nicely. Wonderful recipe evelyn!
