Kitchen Gear: 

Strainer or colander
Food processor (if you have one)
Measuring spoons
Measuring cup
Spatula or large spoon

Ingredients

1  
16-ounce can white beans, drained and rinsed with cold water
1  
to 2 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
1⁄4 cup
olive oil
3 tablespoons
fresh lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
   
pinch salt

Instructions

Wash your hands with soap and water, then gather all your kitchen gear and ingredients and put them on a clean counter.

  1. With the help of your adult, carefully put the steel blade in a food processor (If you don't have a food processor, you can mash everything using a fork or potato masher. It won't get as smooth but it will definitely be yummy!) Add the white beans, garlic, oil, and lemon juice and turn the food processor on. Process until completely smooth. If you are adding any extra spices, do it now.
  2. Spoon into a serving bowl, cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to 2 days.
