Creamy Garlic and Rosemary Dip

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil 1 head garlic, peeled and separated

1 tablespoon fresh rosemary

2 tablespoons lemon juice Salt and pepper

Pour the oil into a saucepan and add the garlic and the rosemary.  Turn the pot on to simmer.  Keep the oil on a very low simmer and cook the garlic gently until very soft.  Don’t let the garlic burn or turn brown.  When done, place the beans in the bowl of a food processor and add the oil and the rest of the ingredients.  Puree to smooth, season to taste.   Serve with crackers or fresh vegetables.
