Sunset Grilled Sweet Pepper White Bean Flat Bread

Grilled peppers in all varieties, marinated in balsamic atop a blend of white bean sauce and a short crust pastry. One of my favorite lessons I learned on our summers in Italy is that bean dip should not be limited to pinto beans. Using a white bean to compliment the complex flavors of sweet peppers makes every bite a story in the making. Every dish should have a story, not just in the recipe but in the ingredients, and I love the fact that Sunset Produce has been family owned for four generations, and built the first greenhouse in North America in the 1940s. Today they are the largest greenhouse company in North America and their dedication to quality comes through in their gourmet peppers that are inspired by flavor.
