DIRECTIONS

  • Soak the beans overnight in plenty of water. Next day, drain and rinse them. Cook them for about 45 minutes in plenty of boiling water. (Do not salt your water -- makes beans tough). Take care not to overcook the beans, they should be cooked but not mushy. Adjust the cooking time accordingly.
  • In a food processor (or a blender), puree the beans about 3-4 cups at a time, emptying each batch into a large mixing bowl as you go.
  • Stir in the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and spices.
  • Garnish with capers and/or olives if you like.
