rustic white bean & herb dip

DSCN2373

What to do with leftover white beans from this?

Make a dip of course!

Recipe:

1 can or leftover beans

2 Tbsp olive oil

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1-2 Tbsp herbs, chopped ( I used rosemary and thyme)

Heat oil in skillet (if you want it burnt like mine – which actually turned out great – get the oil really hot). Add garlic and saute for a few minutes, add herbs and set aside.

Mash beans (or process if you want it really smooth but I liked the chunks). Pour olive oil mixture over beans and stir to combine. Serve with veggies, crackers or eat by the spoonful ;)

        I know! And trust me, about the Yoga training…I’ve had less than a year’s experience, and on and off…and my balance sucks and I barely know anything about it…yet yeah I’m doing it – I feel like I need to for personal reasons right now…I don’t know to be honest (if you’ve read my other posts, I’m all over the place :)
        But yeah, I think anybody can go for it…it takes all kinds. I’m doing it every 2nd weekend for the next 8 months…it’s just life gets in the way and I’m totally stressed out.
