Crudites with Garlicky White Bean Dip
Co-op Olive Oil
1 tablespoons, extra-virgin
3 clove(s), minced
Cannellini Beans, cooked
15½ oz, drained and rinsed
Asda Extra Special Fresh Lemon Mayonnaise
⅛ teaspoons, or to taste
½ teaspoons, level, or chopped fresh parsley (optional)
1 medium, or red pepper, cut into thick slices
1 portion(s), medium, cut into spears
3 medium, peeled and cut into sticks

- To prepare dip, heat oil in a small saucepan over medium heat; sauté garlic, stirring constantly, until garlic just begins to turn golden, about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
- In a food processor (or blender), combine oil mixture, beans and lemon juice. Process until smooth, slowly adding 1 to 2 tablespoons of water to obtain a thick yet creamy consistency; season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Transfer dip to a small bowl and garnish with paprika or chopped parsley, if desired. Serve with prepared vegetables. Yields about 1/4 cup of dip and 1 cup of vegetables per serving.
