White cannellini beans give this dip a delicious creamy texture that is great used as spread on crackers or flat bread, a veggie dip, or even as a spread on a sandwich in place of mayo.
After preparing the baked garlic and it has cooled enough to handle, squeeze out 2 (or more cloves) right into the mini food processor. Process the entire mixture until smooth, then slowly drizzle the oil in until you get the consistency you desire.
