Ingredients

Directions

Heat the olive oil in a large high-sided saute pan over low heat. Add the garlic and cook until just starting to soften, about 1 minute. Increase the heat to medium; add the escarole and cook until just wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the white wine, 1/2 cup water, the cannellini beans (with the liquid from the can) and a large pinch of salt. Bring to a strong boil over medium-high heat and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the rosemary and cook until there is only a light coating of liquid at the bottom of the pan, about 5 more minutes. Turn off the heat and let cool at least 15 minutes.

Transfer the mixture to a food processor and blend until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed (the mixture should look similar to the texture of spinach dip). Spoon into a medium bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until completely chilled, about 2 hours.

Before serving, season the dip with lemon juice and more salt to taste. Drizzle with olive oil. Serve with crackers and/or crudites.
