Sun Dried Tomato Dip

This recipe is from Cooking Light. So says the yellowing newspaper clipping from whence I make it. But the recipe is so old they don’t have the recipe online. Which is really a shame.  They do have a Roasted Garlic, Sun Dried Tomato  and White Bean Dip, but it requires you to roast a head of garlic and who has time for that? This one is much easier and probably just as tasty.

Cooking Light’s Sun -Dried Tomato Dip

1 -3 oz package sun dried tomatoes (not in oil)

1/3 cup fresh basil leaves

2 Tbsp basalmic vinegar

2 Tbsp tomato paste

1 Tbsp olive oil

1/8 tsp each salt and pepper

1 – 15 oz can white beans, drained

1 garlic glove, minced

In a small bowl, combine tomatoes with 1 cup boiling water and let sit for 15 minutes. Drain tomatoes, reserving 1/2 cup liquid. Place tomatoes, reserved liquid, and all remaining ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. This dip gets even better after it sits in the fridge for a while. I put it on Glutino Brand Veggie Crackers. Mmmmmm.
