Ingredients

  • 5 basil leaves

Preparation

  1. Mince the garlic clove. Place beans in a colander and rinse and drain well.

  5. Transfer bean mixture to a food processor and pulse. Add in 1 to 2 tablespoons of water as needed for preferred consistency.
  6. Remove mixture from processor and place in a bowl.
