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!
ROASTED RED PEPPER BUTTER BEAN DIP
- 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)
- salt and black pepper to taste
Place everything in a food processor and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate or serve immediately.
