  • 1 small clove of garlic
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup (loosely packed) fresh Italian parsley leaves
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


Place the beans, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, and parsley in a food processor. Pulse until the mixture is coarsely chopped. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Transfer the bean puree to a small bowl.
