  • 1 can butterbeans (you could soak some dried beans, obviously, but it'd take longer to make.)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • about 25ml of olive oil
  • juice of half a lemon
  • salt
  • pepper

Drain the beans, stick everything in a food processor/blender, mix till it's really smooth. Add more oil/lemon juice if it looks too dry.

I've had it with roasted veg, grated carrot and pepper, or as below with rocket and tomato. It'd probably be great as a dip with pittas too.

Lovely, and now for your close up:

I know it's not a full meal, but I find lunches are one of the hardest things to sort out being vegan and this makes sandwiches so much more appealing...
