White Bean and Sundried Tomato Spread

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • dash pepper, to taste

Method

Heat the oil in a skillet.

Combine the onion mixture with all the remaining ingredients except the salt and pepper in the container of a food processor and process until completely smooth. Drizzle in 2 tablespoons of water or so, to loosen the consistency. Stop and scrape down the sides as needed.

Though this makes a classy appetizer, served with whole-grain crackers or crispbreads, I like to pack it for picnics to use as a spread for fresh French or rye bread.
