Lemon-Garlic White-Bean Dip

I thought this dip looked like a good alternative to hummus. It was pretty good, but we thought it was a little too thick. Next time, I’d add more olive oil and maybe some other spices. Or I’ll just try another white bean dip recipe altogether. The lemon and parsley was a nice addition.
