White Beans With Lemon, Garlic and Rosemary

READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Recipe by Karens Krazy Kitchen

This is my favorite recipe for 2007. Use it as a side dish first and then blend it up and use it as a dip. It keeps well for a week in the fridge. This recipe is an adaption of a Fine Cooking offering.

I wanted to love this dish as it has all my favorite things. The flavor was great, but I used either Great Northern Beans or Navy beans - not sure which. They were too soft for the dish and it sort of turned too mushy for me. I think with either cannellini beans or garbanzo beans, it would be perfect. I'll try it again and give it a rating then. Thanks for the recipe daffazalea ranch!
