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.
