As our Mexican brethren will no doubt attest, few foods pair together so well as beans and avocado. It's a culinary coupling that rightfully takes its place among the world's greatest food duos, right up there with peanut butter and jam. At Food Coma, Emma brings the two together in snack format, with a fresh and flavorful Avocado and White Bean Dip that nails our three kitchen requisites of simple, healthy, and cheap. Check it out.
Avocado and White Bean Dip
Needed: 2 cans cannellini beans, 4 avocados, 3 tablespoons minced garlic, 3 tablespoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 cup cilantro leaves (plus more for garnishing purposes) and 1 lime.
Drain and rinse the beans. In a food processor combine: beans, avocados (this is probably obvious but, leave out the skins and seed), garlic, oil, 1/4 cup cilantro leaves and juice from 1/2 lime. Puree until smooth and dip-like. Garnish with a few more cilantro leaves and squeeze on the rest of the lime juice. If you find it’s too dry add a little more olive oil.
