White beans make a splendid base for dips and spreads. Try this variation with carrots and curry. Yummy!
2 cups water
2 medium carrots, peeled and sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil

1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 cup canned white beans (Cannellini or navy beans), drained
Salt, to taste (optional)
Chopped cilantro for garnish (optional)
1 Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan then add carrots and cook for about 7-8 minutes or until tender. Drain then set aside.
