Bean Spread


I decided that I needed a nice bean spread to add to my cheese sandwich.

I took a can of organic fava beans and organic black beans and blended them with a big garlic clove, some olive oil, a sprinkle of crushed red pepper, a sprinkle of dried basil flakes. Adjust the seasonings to your taste. Add water to thin a bit, a dash of lemon juice,  and salt to taste.

I was very pleased with how this turned out. I did it thick so it worked as a spread, but you can thin it with more liquid (oil and water) so it could work as a dip.
