My palate recently discovered a new herb, lemon thyme, and I instantly thought this would taste great with pasta or as a dip. Less than three hours later I had made my first lemon thyme black bean dip and a love affair with the herb commenced. Lemon thyme is apparently very easy to grow and I am going to put that to the test very soon.
This dip is ideal for the beach or other outings as it does not need to be kept in the fridge.
- 200g black beans
- ½ handful lemon thyme
- 3 gloves garlic
- 3 tbsp water
- ¼ tsp salt and pepper
1. Place all the ingredient in a blender, starting with the water and blend until you have the texture you like. I’m a fan of not having it super smooth so I get hits of the herb or garlic from time to time
2. Serve with crackers, carrots, celery or any other food you usually use for dips
