It’s been awhile since I posted any food related stuff here. I think it’s about time for something new and fresh in that regard!
During one of my visits to Greece recently, I brought back some dried white (“navy”) beans that had been grown by some relatives of my friend in their rural village. Unfortunately, I have yet to visit the village and was hoping that maybe I could get back to Greece for their Easter time, but some work related scheduling has prevented me from doing that.
Nevertheless, it’s nice to have legumes in stock here, such as lentils, white (or what we call “navy” beans), and a few other goodies, that were grown there.
The other day I decided to cook some of the white beans up to make a dip. I started playing around with ingredients I had on hand, including of course, our KirIan Greek Oregano.
I ended up making a very garlicky and oregano tasting dip with the beans, which tasted so good, it did not last long! It was fantastic with vegetables such as raw celery, carrot sticks, and green pepper.
If you’re interested, head over to “White Bean Dip With Oregano & Garlic.”
Try it! Let me know if you like it or not! If too much garlic is an issue for you, (never an issue here), you might want to use less. But then…. garlic! So tasty, so good for you!
