Crimson-spotted Borlotti (sometimes called cranberry beans) are incredibly nutty, flavorful beans. Pureed into a dip, they’re delicious and rich.
The everyday hummus gets a makeover with these savory beans.
* 3 cups of shelled beans
* 1 clove of garlic
* 3 anchovies
* 1½ tablespoons of lemon juice
* ¼ cup of olive oil
* salt and pepper
Use fresh Borlotti to make a tasty hummus. Simmer the shelled beans in water for about 40 minutes, removing the froth that forms on the surface. Once cooled, puree with garlic, anchovies, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt and pepper. Serve with olives and flat bread.
