Northern White Bean Dip

I meant to use three cans of northern white beans for an asparagus and white bean matzo ball soup. But once I added the veggies and matzo balls the beans felt like too much. However, I still had cans of white beans in my cabinet and needed to do something with them!

Lesson learned: When life hands you beans, make bean dip.
