I made this in about 8 minutes this morning. I’ve got meetings over lunch and I’m out of the office all afternoon and wanted something I could just snack on throughout the day with pitta. It’s basically hummus, just with a different bean (are chickpeas beans? Who knows). A jar of sun dried tomatoes is the best here because their oil helps it become nice and smooth.

In a blender, place 1 rinsed tin of cannellini beans, 5 sun dried tomatoes and 2 dessert spoons of their oil, a good grind of black pepper. Whizz til at your desired consistency. I prefer it a little lumpy but scoopable with my pitta! 


I’m trying to use up what’s in my fridge and cupboard before going away for Christmas. 

In a blender whizz up a tin of rinsed black eyed beans, 3-4 sun dried tomatoes and their oil, and 1 minced garlic glove. Season and serve. 

I spread mine on a toasted bagel, but I also heated it in the microwave and had it with grilled polenta, which was super tasty.
