Recipe for Broad Bean and Artichoke Heart dip



Here is a very easy recipe I discovered for a green dip, which is a good source of protein, healthy fats, vitamins and fibre.
Get a jar of artichoke hearts in olive oil such as this one from Sacla. Also purchase a bag of frozen broad beans.
Many supermarkets sell the baby broad beans.
Take a quantity of broad beans roughly approximate to the quantity of the artichoke hearts.
Cook in a microwave according to the instructions on the pack.
Drain and allow to cool.
Meanwhile, open your jar(s) artichoke hearts.
Add them to a blender with the cooked beans, including all the oil, and set your blender to puree. You can add a little lemon juice or water if the liquid seems to be absorbed too soon. If you don't have a blender a potato masher would probably work too.
Blend until a rough consistency is achieved, store in the fridge and use as you would any dip.
