Tasty and lots of protien.. I prefer cannellini beans to garbanzo beans because Cannellini have a milder taste..
Take 4 garlic cloves and mince in a 2 cup high speed food chopper.. Transfer garlic to a heated skillet with 2 tblsps of EVOO, and cook gently while you put a sprig of fresh rosemary and 2 sprigs fresh thyme in the chopper and chop fine.. Then add that in with the garlic and cook a minute or two..add pepper to taste..remove from heat.. If using dried rosemary and thyme, I’d use 1/2 tsp of rosemary and 1 tsp of thyme..
Puree a can, of drained and rinsed, cannelli beans in the food chopper, stopping to scrap down the sides, until you have a smooth and creamy puree ( takes about 5 minutes ) add the herbs with the oil, add lemon juice..blend another minute or two..add salt at this time or more lemon juice, if needed..The lemon itself is a great salt substitute, I never add salt to this, but we all have different salt preferences..
I couldnt believe the flavors and ate it with Jimaca spears and couldn’t eat the whole Jimaca.. It was my first Jimaca, very different but I liked it..
On a cleanup note, after transferring the dip into a serving bowl or container, remove the blade and dry wipe it and the chopper bowl with a paper towel.. Put the blade back in, pour in 1/8 cup each of vinegar and isopropyl alcohol and run the chopper.. You wont believe how fast and effective it works.. Dump it out, add water and zip it again..Repeat with water.. wipe dry and put away.. Its 3 zips and its done.. This has worked for anything I’ve used my chopper for.. This was that chopper’s last hurrah though.. But look at it, it was over 10 years old and looked and worked beautiful, right up to the end.. The motor finally just gave out..
