Roasted Red Pepper Butter Bean Dip

I love a good bean dip.  Its great for dipping vegetables and to make a delicious sandwich.  I usually make hummus, but yesterday I realized I was out of chickpeas (the horror!), but I came up with this delicious butter bean dip that might even be better than my favourite hummus recipe and that’s saying A LOT!

  • 1 can butter beans, drained.
  • 1 small roasted red pepper
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water ( I like a very smooth runny dip, use less for a thicker dip)

Directions

Place everything in a food processor and blend until smooth.  Taste and adjust salt and pepper to taste.  Refrigerate or serve immediately.
