  • 3 slices bacon, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons EVOO
  • 1 carrot, finely chopped
  • 3 scallions, green and white parts chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed and peeled
  • 1 can (15.5 oz.) black beans, rinsed

In a medium saucepan, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a bowl; discard the fat. Add the EVOO to the pan, then add the carrot, scallions and garlic and cook over medium heat, stirring until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the beans, cover, lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Let cool.

Using a blender, puree the bean mixture with the yogurt, salt and pepper to taste, and 2 to 3 tbsp. water until nearly smooth. Add the bacon, pulse to mix.
