No Butter Here! (a new potluck dip)

I tried a new bean dip recipe out of Bon Appetit magazine. I didn't really have high hopes for it, but after tinkering (of course!) it is really good. Like garlic butter, but better, and supposedly healthier too. Really good on baby carrots and bread... my next potluck dish!

Spicy Garlic Bean Dip
Whirl everything in food processor, adding oil gradually, until the beans are pureed like hummus:
1 can cannellini beans, rinsed & drained
3-5 TB olive oil, use enough to make it creamy-ish
1 TB balsamic vinegar
1/4 tea white pepper
1/2 tea paprika
2 dried red chiles
sprinkle of black pepper and salt
1-2 TB lemon juice (go easy, too much lemon ruins the dip)
5 cloves garlic
