White Bean & Basil Spread

I’ve posted plenty of bean dips and spreads in the past – black beans with avocado, white beans with avocado, white beans with walnuts, and white beans and sun dried tomatoes. I am a fan of these because they are fast and easy to make, and you can either scoop them up with crackers or vegetables, or use them on a sandwich or wrap. So here is one more to add to the list, inspired by the basil which seems to be just about everywhere right now! The photo is from a wrap I made very early one morning, and I looked forward to lunch all day.

1 (15 oz.) can white beans, rinsed and drained
1 T olive oil
1 T lemon juice
Large handful fresh basil leaves, washed
Salt and Pepper

Blend all ingredients in a food processor.
