Ingredients
  • 1 head of garlic
  • 2 tablespoons + ½ teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • ½ bunch finely chopped cilantro
  • 2 cups Kidney Beans, cooked
  • 1 cup garbanzo beans, cooked
  • ½ teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
Instructions
  1. Roast garlic by removing some of the outer layer of skin but not breaking any cloves off. Trim a small portion off the top of the head to expose cloves. Place in a square sheet of aluminum foil. Drizzle with ½ teaspoon of olive oil. Seal package and place in a 400 degree oven for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
  2. While garlic is roasting, heat the remaining olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Cook the onion until soft. Set aside. In a food processor combine the onions, beans, vinegar, salt and pepper. Squeeze roasted garlic from each clove and add to the mixture. Process until smooth. (If necessary, add water to create a smooth mixture). Serve warm or room temperature with grilled bread and vegetables.
