White Bean Dip (hummus wanna-be)

Well, as most of you know who read this, I love hummus. What I love about hummus is everything. But, I don't love the fat - even if they are good fats. So, I tried something similar to hummus.

19 oz white beans, drained and rinsed (I actually cooked raw beans like my friend Rach)
1 T tahini
1 T olive oil
2 green onions (only the white and light green parts)
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp salt
(should be some garlic but I forgot it and it still tastes fine)
1 large lemon - juice - should be at 3 T

Mix in a food processor and eat with pita or veggies. Notice there is definitely not as much tahini or olive oil making it healthier and still has tons of protein. Enjoy!
