I had high hopes for this spread, but it did not live up to it’s potential. I made it the night before, so the flavors would have a chance to meld, but that didn’t happen. Since I was taking this to a party directly from work, I didn’t have a chance to taste it until I was in the host’s home. I added more salt at her house, but there wasn’t much else I could do at that point. Here it is, served on a mini whole wheat pita from Trader Joe’s:

1 c. dry white beans, soaked overnight and then cooked
1 T olive oil
2 T lemon juice
1 t minced garlic
2 T chopped fresh parsley
1/3 c. chopped walnuts, toasted

Mix beans, olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic in a food processor and blend until desired consistency. Place mixture in a small bowl, and stir in parsley and walnuts. Add salt to taste.

On a positive note, the guests certainly were treated to many other wonderful appetizers, including this one: Belgian Endive topped with cream cheese, smoked salmon, and dill.
