Bean and Pea Dip GF SCD

Bowl of Bean and Pea Dip with raw vegetable crudites

I adore peas. Bursting with nutrition they are an excellent source of protein as well as being rich in dietary fibre, iron and Vitamin C. They are also a good source of Folic Acid and Vitamin B6 as well as lutein, an antioxidant carotenoid essential for eye health.
This bean and pea dip is simple to prepare and tastes delicious but once made, taste it and add in a little extra lemon juice or salt to your taste.

Bean and Pea Dip GF SCD

250g frozen peas
250g cooked haricot (navy) beans or 1 400g tin organic haricot beans in water
2 cloves of garlic crushed
juice of half a lemon 
salt

  • Pour the peas into a pan, add water and bring to the boil.  Simmer for 3 minutes. Then leave to cool down.
  • Rinse the haricot beans well under running water, then drain well.
  • Squeeze the juice from half a lemon.
  • Crush the garlic.
  • Tip the cooked peas, beans, garlic and lemon juice into a blender or food processor.
  • Process the ingredients until smooth.
  • Add freshly ground salt to taste.
