Lunch with Tiffany

Standard

I’ve found that including pulses or beans of some kind in my lunchbox for work is an effective way of staving off hunger pains and keeping my blood sugar steady until I get home. After spending last week rocking an incredibly garlicky humous (which I got away with as everyone at work has snuffly colds), I thought I’d give this butterbean pate from http://vegweb.com/recipes/olive-butterbean-pate a try.

I struggle a little with butterbeans – whatever you do to them they seem to retain a smooth blandness, but in this case the addition of nut oil seems to give them a little extra edge. Wouldn’t mind redoing this recipe again, maybe with a little tahini, and perhaps a little lime or lemon juice….?
