an easy party pate
When my friend Steven came to visit I asked him if he had any great recipes using garbanzo beans. I explained that another friend had sent a can of beans to show off the new transparent packaging and in exchange I'd post a holiday recipe.
This smoked trout dip is easy to make with a full smokey flavor balanced by the lemon and dill. It's smooth and spreadable and goes well with crostini or a crisp plain cracker. I hope you all enjoy it.Print
