Prep time
Total time
This Kalamata white bean spread is a vegan appetizer recipe I created for a picnic. You'll love the smooth texture, salty taste and za'atar flavor!
Serves: 6+ servings
  • 1 800g(28oz) can white beans, rinsed and drained (You can use dry beans and boil them yourself too; In that case use about 350g-400g dry beans)
  • ½ cup kalamata olives, sliced and pitted
  • half a lemon's juice
  • 3 garlic cloves, mashed
  • 2 Tbsps olive oil
  • ½ tsp ground white pepper (use white pepper only; it has a more subtle flavor)
  • 1 Tbsp za'atar
  • water
  1. Put all ingredients in your food processor.
  2. Add just a little bit of water (3-4 Tbsps).
  3. Process until smooth.
  4. Serve with crunchy toast or fresh veggies!
