Prep Time 7 minutes
Total Time 7 minutes
Servings 4


  • 1 can (540 ml/19 fl oz.) white kidney (cannellini) beans drained
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2-3 garlic cloves minced
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Fresh basil (I use 5-6 larger leaves)
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Drain beans, place them in a food processor or blender along with olive oil, water, garlic, lemon juice, basil, and salt & pepper. If you're making this in a blender, you may need to add a bit of extra water to get it going.
  • Blend until mixed (you may have to stir it occasionally).
  • Serve chilled.
