Last night I was starving hungry and supper was not ready so I whizzed up this quick dip to keep us from snacking on more unhealthy options. As I have posted numerous times before beans are good for you, they are cheap, low GI and count towards your 5-a-day. Sophie at Mostly Eating has written everything that I want to say about why beans are good for you (and the planet), far more eloquently that I could.
In this dip a can of flageolet beans are mixed with tamari, sweet chilli sauce and sesame oil to give an Asian inspired dip. I think that flageolet beans work best here, but any bean would do depending what you have in the store cupboard.
Asian Bean Dip
1 can flageolet beans (rinsed well and drained)
2tbs tamari (I use Clearspring) or soy sauce
2tbs sweet chilli sauce (I use Healthy Boy brand as it has a good kick to it)
1tbs sesame oil
Salt & pepper to taste
Add all the ingredients to the food processor and whizz until well pureed. Serve with crudities and sliced pitta bread.
