Smoky Sun Dried Tomato + White Bean Dip
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.
