3 cups cannellini beans (2 15 oz. cans, drained and rinsed)
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. sesame oil
2 tsp. soy sauce

    Combine the white beans, olive oil, sesame oil, soy sauce, sriracha, garlic and lime juice in a food processor.  Process until well blended.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  If needed, add water 1 tablespoon at a time to achieve a smoother consistency.  (I find using beans I have cooked myself tends to make additional water unnecessary.)  Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with fresh cilantro, if desired.
