Mediterranean White Bean Spread With Fresh Herbs
10 mins (prep 10)

This spread or dip is a bit different than others I've tried. The flavor reminds me of herbed olive oil that you dip bread into. Fresh herbs are a must, but any white bean can be used in place of the cannellini beans. I used purple basil, which gave the spread a nice color. It is good any way you'd normally use hummus or most any dip, but I think it is especially good on crostini or crackers, or as a sandwich spread. This is adapted from a recipe from Kraft.
