Easy Bean and Pesto Spread

Checking in with a very easy and quick recipe today…


I whipped this spread up in less than 10 minutes and took this to a small gathering last night and it was a hit.  The leftovers will be a great sandwich spread.

Bean and Pesto Spread

1, 15 oz can of cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
3-6 Tablespoons prepared pesto
1 tsp (or more to taste) apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar
A couple of dashes of seasoning (TJ’s 21 Seasoning Salute is perfect for this)

1.  Put the beans, pesto, vinegar, seasoning in a food processor and blend until combined.
2.  Refrigerate until ready to use.

My dad makes the best pesto out of his garden’s bounty of basil so I always have pesto on hand.  This was a fun new way to use it.

Do you have an easy dip/spread recipe to share?  Links welcome.

  1. Mmmm! Looks easy and delicious! When I go to parties, I usually bring mock-amole, a healthier version of guac; I used one avocado, plus a ton of cooked (mashed) peas. It’s a huge hit! Happy Sunday!

  2. This sounds tasty! And so easy to make. Thanks! I don’t usually do the making, but my husband makes a great guacamole. Sadly, unlike Carrie’s (above comment) it’s probably not that healthy. We may have to try her mock-amole version 🙂 Appreciate the tips. Happy New Year!
