Chefs tips
  • Works well with cannellini or haricot beans. For a vegan version use a non-dairy yogurt alternative.
  • Spice it up with a teaspoon of curry paste. You could use any vegetables for dipping - choose a variety of colours to keep things exciting.
  • Freezing instructions: dip suitable for freezing. Defrost in the fridge and use immediately.
