A wine bar meal in Ireland with Erin and Tim, our niece and her fiancee, inspired this recipe. It was our first meal together in Galway – a very fun evening. When they make a movie about the trip, I expect the working title to be Four Foodies on a Roll. We all like to try new things, and it was one of those trips where I’m making notes about things to try at home and interesting presentation ideas.
We don’t have a big selection of beans in Poland, so this was made with fasolka, a small white bean.
1 1/2 cups cooked white beans or 15 ounce can drained
2 – 4 tablespoons liquid from beans
2 tablespoons champagne vinegar
2 – 3 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon tahini
leaves from one sprig of thyme, or a pinch of dried thyme
- Blend all ingredients in a food processor, using just enough liquid from the beans to get a nice spreadable texture
- Serve with bread and/or raw vegetables
