Smoky Sun Dried Tomato + White Bean Dip

serves 4-6

4oz sun dried tomatoes

1 can white beans, rinsed and drained

3 tbs olive oil

2 tsp smoked paprika

2 tsp dried rosemary

1 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp crushed red pepper

salt and pepper

sea salt + cracked black pepper, for topping

olive oil, for topping

In a kettle, bring 3 cups of water to a boil. In a heatproof bowl, pour boiling water over tomatoes and rosemary. Let stand, covered for 10 minutes.

Drain hydrated tomatoes and set aside, reserving 1/4 cup tomato steeping liquid. In a food processor, combine beans, tomatoes, garlic, smoked paprika, red pepper and a generous seasoning of salt and pepper. Pulse to combine for about 30 seconds – this should form a coarse paste. Scrape down sides of food processor and add reserved tomato liquid. Pulse to combine until a smooth puree is formed, about an additional 1 minute.

Scoop into a bowl and top with olive oil, cracked black pepper and sea salt.
