I have been on a real bean dip kick lately.
I suspect this may be partly due to having an abundance of tinned beans in the pantry, and partly due to looking for interesting snack foods and sandwich fillers.
And just how this mint and bean dip came to be, was no different.
For Mr BBB and I had our second ante-natal class earlier in the week – which runs between the unfortunate hours of 6.00pm and 9.00pm.
Unfortunate for my appetite that is.
Knowing that there was no way I would make it to 9.00pm without eating dinner, but only having around 10 minutes to throw something together to take with us to eat, I raided our pantry with haste.
I had GF wraps. I had salad. I just needed a protein.
And it was a tin of cannellini beans to the rescue!
Cannellini beans, tahini, mustard and fresh mint. Whirled in my mini food processor…
And our “sandwich” filler was complete.
I would have been more than happy to pack this ‘dip’ alongside some rice crackers, if I was just after a snack.
But as I was looking for something more substantial, I piled spoonfuls of the dip atop a couple GF wraps, covered it in salad, and wrapped up dinner instead.
Creamy and minty…..Delish!
What about you? Do you have a favourite sandwich filler? Aside from bean dips, I love eggs in sandwiches!
