easy great northern bean dip

this is an easy, hummus-like dip that's delicious on some focaccia, or other bread.  it's also using the beans that we grew in the garden and put in the shares.  we're getting in bean mode these days, so

1 1/2 c gn beans
2 - 4 tbs yogurt
4 tbs olive oil
jalepeno pepper  (3-7 slices, diced)
1-2 tsp rosemary (to taste. parsley would be a good replacement)
1/2 tsp cumin
2 tsp garlic (4-6 cloves chopped)
1 tbsp lemon juice (to taste)
s+p to taste

soak the beans over night (or quick cook them if you prefer).  drain them and put them in 7or 8 c of water over medium heat for 40-45min - until soft.  in a food processor, fill half with beans.  add the rest of the ingredients and blend.  taste it as you go along, so you can decide if it is too flavorful or not enough.  add tsps of warm water to make the dip creamier, and more gn beans to thicken it.
