Lemon Lover's French Bean Dip

This is a wonderfully lemony bean dip that is low fat and a great, healthy alternative to dairy dips. It is inspired by traditional bean spreads found in Provence. The traditional herb is rosemary, but my favorite is thyme, and simple parsley does a surprisingly creditable job.


I’m always on the look out for nondairy dips and spreads. Cream cheese is over used in American cuisine. Try this spread even if you think you don’t like anchovies. In my experience people who say they dislike anchovies usually mean they don’t like them on pizza. The same people will tell me that they love Thai food which has anchovy-based fish sauce in nearly every dish.

Easy Berry Vinegar

Any easy way to save some of the flavors of summer berries and brighten any salad dressing.
