Garlic and Herb White Bean Dip
This hearty dip is a crazy-simple appetizer but also can be the heart of a light supper, served with an assortment of vegetables, cheese, crackers, sliced meat and fruit. The recipe comes from the cookbook Pretty Simple Cooking.
*As you choose herbs, be mindful that some are quite potent. For example, a few leaves of rosemary go a long way, but you can be more liberal with basil or chives. In winter, make the dip with a spoonful of jarred pesto instead of herbs.
