Cannellini Bean Dip

 This makes a great dip for vegetables or low carb crackers.  If you add more stock you would get an excellent bean soup.  To make a purely vegetarian dish, use vegetable stock.  It is important to use the best quality olive oil available.

Serving Size: 4
Cuisine: Italian
-= Ingredients =-
500 gram Cannellini beans
Fresh rosemary
4 cup Chicken stock
1 medium Onion ; diced
2 cloves Garlic ; chopped
1 large Carrot ; diced
1 stalk Celery ; diced
3 medium Tomato ; chopped
2 teaspoon sea salt
Pepper ; freshly ground

-= Instructions =-
Soak the beans over night.  You can use tinned white beans, but the flavor won’t be as good.

Put all of the ingredients except the oil in a casserole.  Simmer for about 2 hours until the beans are fully cooked, adding water if necessary.  Cool this mixture to room temperature.

Use a food processor to blend the beans to a creamy texture.

Serve drizzled with more oil and some paprika powder to add a bit of color.
