White Bean Hummus

This is the hummus mom brought to the family reunion in Rupert.

2 cloves garlic
1 t chopped fresh rosemary
2 cans great Northern beans, rinsed and drained (3 C cooked or 1 C dry, then cooked)
3 T lemon juice
3 T tahini (I just grind up sesame seeds in my blender to make a paste)
3/4 t salt
1/4 t ground red pepper (I just used black pepper)
1/4 C olive oil

You can make this in a food processor, but I lost the blade to mine (!), so I did it this time in the blender.  First I blended up the sesame seeds, added the rosemary, garlic, salt, and pepper, then added the lemon juice, beans, and oil.  I just blended it until it was all smooth. Delicious with those multi-grain Food Should Taste Good chips from Costco.
