About this recipe:I made this as an alternative to tomato sauce for a pizza topping, but I think it was even better the next day as a dip. The amount of ingredients I used only makes about 250ml, so you may want to double or triple the amounts if making for a party.
2 tablespoons pine nuts
2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil
1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
175g tinned cannellini beans
2 cloves garlic, cut in half
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 plum tomato, roughly chopped
sea salt and black pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil

Place the pine nuts, basil and oregano into a food processor. Cover, and pulse 2 or 3 times to finely grind the nuts. Add beans and garlic; process until smooth, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Pour in the lime juice, tomato, salt and pepper, and pulse 2 to 3 times until mixture is smooth and spreadable. With the food processor running, drizzle the oil into the dip. If mixture becomes too thick, add a tablespoon of water at a time until the dip is the right consistency.
