this morning i whipped up a cannellini bean spread to have with lunch-- i was inspired after having it yesterday while out for lunch.
i used a whole foods recipe, with a couple minor adjustments. here's what i did:
cannellini bean spread
- 3 T olive oil
- 3 large garlic cloves, pushed through a press
- 1/2 t crushed red pepper
- 1 14.5 oz can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
- juice of 1/2 a lemon, or more to taste
- pinch cayenne
- sea salt and ground pepper, to taste
the spread turned out awesome. just a bit of a kick from the red pepper flakes & cayenne, but none of that mouth on fire / can't taste anything spice.
sandwiched with herbed greens and yellow bell pepper on 12-grain seed bread, more pepper on the side, a tangelo, and 2 strawberriesobligatory close-ups:
i still feel slightly blah. i think i'm ready for the weekend to be over. of course, come tomorrow i will crave some time to myself...
