white bean spread with young radicchio
I was all ready to mark this down as another entry in the Dark Days Challenge, but then realized that we are no longer living in the dark days! The farmers' market has been going for several weeks and we recently picked up some large white beans and some young radicchio, among other things.
Loosely following this recipe, I blended the cooked beans, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, dried basil, salt, and pepper in a food processor and spread it on some homemade chive bread and topped it with chopped up young radicchio leaves in a balsamic vinaigrette.
Pretty tasty, but I think next time I'll leave the beans chunkier for a texture more like bruschetta.
