This dip is simply awesome. It’s got a little kick, and is so flavoursome. It can be eaten on toast, you can make bruschetta with it, or have it with crudités. It’s also great in sandwiches for picnics, so mark this as a sandwich filler too – particularly if you serve it on ciabatta bread with thinly sliced tomatoes and olives, a drizzle of oil on the tomatoes, and you have the perfect sandwich ever. Just the same you will enjoy it immensely. The smoked flavour comes through, and leaves a wonderful after taste. The only problem you may encounter with this is it’s very more-ish ! Enjoy !
1 400g tin borlotti beans
