Recipes (F)EASTER PART 1: BUTTERBEAN & RED PEPPER SPREAD

(F)EASTER PART 1: BUTTERBEAN & RED PEPPER SPREAD

Prep 10 mins
Cooking 30 mins
Serves 10

A lazy long-table lunch with good friends just won’t be the same without plenty of gorgeous crusty bread to dip and spread and soak up all the goodness on offer.

Seriously pocket-friendly tinned butterbeans are a fabulously versatile base for many a dip or spread. Take this Cajun red pepper version. It’s salty, it’s creamy, it’s slightly sweet and it’s got a bit of good ‘ol southern bite – pretty much our idea of the perfect thing to schmear.

- WHAT YOU WILL NEED -

  • 1 lrg white onion, finely diced
  • 1 red pepper, cored & finely sliced
  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 fat cloves garlic, minced
  • 2-3 tsp LOUISIANA CAJUN
  • 2 tins butterbeans, drained
  • Salt to taste

- METHOD -

Fry the onion and red pepper over low heat in the olive oil until soft. Add the garlic and the Cape Herb & Spice Louisiana Cajun Rub Seasoning and fry for a further minute or two. Tumble in the butterbeans and stir through to coat. Place in a food processor and blitz until smooth. Add water one tablespoon at a time until you get the spread consistency you like. Refrigerate until used.
