Roman Bean Spread
Originally uploaded by Simply Frugal
Navy beans, rosemary, and garlic highlight this simple bean spread, which dates from Roman times. It makes a dip similar to hummus, and is great on pita or flatbreads.

Roman Bean Spread
Navy beans 1 C
Oil 2 Tbsp
Garlic clove 1
Rosemary 1/2 tsp
Worcestershire sauce 1 tsp
Lemon juice 1 Tbsp

Soak beans overnight, drain and rinse. Cover with fresh water and simmer 1 hour or until very tender.

Saute oil, garlic, and rosemary for 5 minutes, let cool.

Put beans in food processor. With motor running, slowly add garlic mixture.

Add Worcestershire sauce and lemon juice. Taste for seasoning and adjust salt and pepper.

Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving.
