Cannellini Bean, Lemon & Herb Dip
- In a medium pot, bring to a boil water, cannellini beans and salt. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 60-90 minutes, until beans are cooked through and soft.
- Strain beans, reserving the liquid.
- In a food processor or high-speed blender, combine cooked beans with the rest of the ingredients. Process until smooth. If consistency is too thick, add some of the reserved cooking water to thin it out a bit. Continue until desired consistency is reached.
