Pistachio Rosemary Spread

Pistachio Rosemary Spread


Pistachio rosemary spread on crostini

Everyone loves hummus. But mixing pistachio, rosemary, and white beans make for a nice twist – especially since sesame (tahini) is very high in amines. It’s a delicious blend of flavors and sure to be a hit at any party – and a low-amine treat that allergy sufferers can eat without doom.

Yield: About 2 Cups

1/2 C dried white beans, cooked

1/2 C pistachios

4 Tbsp water

4 Tbsp safflower oil

2 Tbsp fresh rosemary leaves +

handful of fresh rosemary leaves for garnish

Crostini (little toast rounds will work fine – you don’t need oil and cheese and all that unless you really want to. Adjust for gluten-free.)

2 clove garlic

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp ascorbic acid

  • Cook white beans for about 1 hour or until done.
  • Soak pistachios in water.
  • When beans are done, add all ingredients (except garnish rosemary) to a food processor and process until very smooth.
  • Spread onto crostini slices and press one or two rosemary leaves into the middle of each.
  • Serve.
