Spicy Basil Bean Dip (modified from this recipe)

1 head garlic
1 15 oz can white beans, drained and rinsed
3 T oil (preferably olive, but I used canola)
2 1/2 tsp red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (this is spicy, you can use less if you'd like)
1/4 cup fresh basil (I never actually measure this)

Peel the garlic and slice the end off of each clove. Place the garlic into a saucepan of boiling water for 5 minutes, then remove from heat and drain. Place all ingredients except basil into a food processor and process until smooth.  Slice the basil into strips as thin as possible and stir into the dip. (You can put the basil into the food processor with the other ingredients but then you often get big uneven pieces of basil.) Adjust seasoning as desired. Serve with chopped vegetables (carrots, red and yellow peppers, broccoli, cauliflower) and pita chips or bagel chips.

I brought this to a potluck and it went over really well.  It's also a great change of pace from hummus!

Thanks for posting this.  I made it tonight, and the only thing I did differently was to use the apple cider vinegar like in the original recipe.

It's like an Italian hummus.

Yay!  I'm glad it worked for you.  Someone at the potluck said that it reminded them of Indian food, so I think that next time I make it I may add some ginger and cumin.  Italian-Indian hummus...fusion cuisine at its finest  Smiley
