A Great Alternative To Houmous!
My son adores houmous ( I mean who doesn’t!) and loves it daily with breadsticks. As my daughter is allergic to sesame I wanted to find a dip that she could have and enjoy when he has his houmous. This vegan butter bean and garlic dip is a great alternative.
I had a tin of butter beans that had been in the back of the cupboard for ages. You know when you buy something and think, I will make something different with that and then they sit there for ages as you can never quite work out what to do with them?
This vegan butter bean and garlic dip is so tasty you may find yourself swapping to this instead!
This Butterbean & Garlic Dip is so easy to make!
Take your butter beans, garlic, lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, water, salt & pepper and put it all in your blender.
Whizz it up and your ready to go!
You may need to blend the ingredients for a few minutes for it to break up and become smooth and creamy. Every 20 seconds or so, open the blender and give it a stir around with a spoon to make sure all of the mixture gets blended.
What can I serve with this Vegan Butterbean & Garlic Dip?
I normally serve this vegan butterbean and garlic dip with my homemade tortilla chips. This is a great way to use up those last couple of tortilla wraps that normally go hard and get thrown away.
Just cut tortilla wraps into triangles, spray with some oil and bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 10-15 minutes depending on your oven, turning halfway.
You can also serve it with breadsticks or crudities, if you want to be super healthy. Carrots, cucumber and red pepper work really well.
This recipe is a great healthy snack for all the family.
