The Fighter - White Beantown Dip w/ CRACK-ers



White Beantown Dip w/ CRACK-ers

This dip is wicked awesome, as is the film. I made a huge spread for this year's Oscars, letting the nominees for best picture be my inspiration. This is one of my favorites of the night. This dip is garlicky, cheap, easy and of course yum. What more could you want?

-About 3 cups cooked white northern beans

-4 cloves of garlic

-Small handful of basil, chopped

-Juice of half a lemon

-1 plum tomato

-3 TB olive oil

-salt (to taste)

In a food processor, put in 2 gloves of garlic and chop it up. Add the beans, lemon juice, 1 TB olive oil and salt and blend until creamy. Scrape the mixture out of the processor and put in a mixing bowl. Fold in the chopped basil. Let chill for about an hour (semi-optional). When ready to serve, put the dip on a plate or in a dip bowl. Chop the tomato and the remaining 2 garlic cloves. Heat 2 TB olive oil in a pan and place the chopped garlic in until fragrant (don't burn it). Top the dip with tomatoes, then drizzle the garlic and oil over the top. Top with fresh cracked pepper. Serve with crackers, bread or crostini.
