Prep Time : 10 minutes

Cooking Time : 120 minutes

This recipe is a nice alternative to the all so common hummus that seems to be lineing our shelves left right and center. It’s a very simple recipe and a lovely flavour and texture that is achieved from the richness of the butterbeans.

Cooking Instructions

I recommend that you soak Butterbeans the night before and cook them to make this recipe as the flavour is so much better than the tinned versions, but if this is not possible choose a good quality precooked tin of butterbeans.

  1. Make yourself the base paste by adding the ginger, garlic, tamari, chilli and spices to the food processor till you achieve a smooth paste this might require an addition of oil or water .
  2. Place 400g of butterbeans into your food processor with base paste and mix for 5 seconds till the butterbeans have broken up but not into a puree, again if this is dry add a splash of water or some good oil.
  3. Place this mix into a bowl add the 100g of whole butterbeans dress in oil and season to taste before serving with a nice wedge of sourdough and a salad of your choice.
