Ingredients Serves 4
- 1 14-oz can white beans
- 9 sun dried tomatoes
- Small bunch red basil
- 1 clove garlic (optional)
- 1/4 tsp salt
To make this pate you will need:
- One 14-oz can white bean (drained and rinsed), or 2 cups of precooked white beans;
- 8-10 sun dried tomatoes;
- Small bunch of red basil, roughly chopped and hard stems removed;
- 1-2 garlic cloves, peeled.
If you have a powerful blender, just place all the ingredients into it and process until smooth. Otherwise, first place 8-10 sun dried tomatoes and process until finely chopped.
Next, add the basil and process again.
And finally, add the beans, garlic cloves and a pinch of salt. Blend until smooth and creamy.
Optionally you can add 2 tablespoons of olive oil (from the sun-dried tomatoes jar) to reach more silky and soft consistensy.
