Butter Bean Dip

Who doesn't love a dip? This one is no exception. Super easy to make with 90% cupboard ingredients. If you make a couple of dips on Monday, pop them in the fridge, when hunger strikes grab your dip, cut up some carrots, peppers, cucumber and celery sticks and in minutes you have a healthy snack. Great alternative to a cuppa and biscuits. Think raw plant based for optimum health.
