¼ cup olive oil, extra-virgin
plus more for garnish if desired
15 ounces white beans
or cannelloni beans, canned, drained and rinsed

    How to prepare garlic scapes

  2. Add the garlic scapes to a food processor with the lemon juice, salt, and black pepper. Process until finely chopped, pulsing and scraping sides as needed; about one minute.

  3. Add the beans and pulse until you achieve a rough puree. With the food processor running, drizzle in the olive oil + 2 or 3 tablespoons of water until fairly smooth.

  4. Taste and adjust seasoning with additional salt, black pepper, and lemon juice.

Makes about 1 ½ cups of dip.
