I whipped this up for our lunch today and it was too good not to share with you, the four of us ate the entire batch and my six year old has declared it the best thing she’s ever eaten! We dipped vege sticks and crackers into it and I also had some roasted red capsicum that needed using, so I diced it into small pieces and it complimented the dip really well.
1 can butter beans, drained and rinsed (or 250g cooked butter beans)
120g green olives (pitted weight)
1 clove garlic, peeled
60g raw cashews
30g extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
20g lemon juice
EVOO and paprika, to serve
Place all ingredients into your Thermomix bowl and process for 10 seconds on speed 6. It will still have some texture after this time – if you are wanting a smooth dip, process for longer, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
Serve with a slosh of EVOO and a sprinkle of paprika.
