Great Garlic Northerner's!

Alright all you garlic lovers, this recipe was made with you in mind! This is a Lebanese side dish common to my household and I've finally mustered the strength to give it away to all you loyal readers! It's very nutritious...and yes, you guessed it... Fun, easy and positively delicious!

Here's what you'll need!

4 cans great northern beans
5 medium cloves of garlic
3 tbs extra virgin olive oil
2 tbs lemon
1 tbs salt
1/3 cup finely chopped parsley

Here's what you do!

-Cook the beans on medium heat for about fifteen minutes
-Using a spice grinder, smash the garlic and salt together until it is of a paste consistency
(if you don't have one of these miracle workers, get one! Until then, just use a garlic press and add the salt later)




















-finely chop the parsley and add it to the beans once they're fully cooked
-combine the rest of the ingredients to the beans and stir well

Best if served cold, enjoy!
