It's been awhile since I've posted an appetizer recipe! I have a great one for you today... Pesto White Bean Spread! Perfect on crackers, sliced bread or some crostini. It would also be great with a veggie tray. It's actually pretty good for you too, which is a plus! I love the pesto flavor, fresh parsley adds some color, and the beans are a nice texture when they're blended.
I love how simple this recipe is and also how inexpensive it is to make. You can whip it up in a pinch for last minute company or have it on the menu for the holidays. If you're not a fan of garlic, you can leave that out, and to make it vegan, skip the parmesan cheese. So adaptable! Enjoy!
