Smoky Bean & Garlic Paté OR Smoky Bean & Broccoli Paté

Smoky Bean & Garlic Paté OR Smoky Bean & Broccoli Paté

Serves 2-4 | 5 minutes 

This is a really easy paté/dip which lends itself to lots of variations. We give two suggestions - but you could also try it with red pepper (roasted, oil-free or fresh). 



  • 1 tin of white beans: butter or white haricot, rinsed and drained
  • 1-2 tsp crushed garlic or purée (use a tube if you're in a hurry) OR half a head of broccoli, divided into florets and lightly steamed
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • salt and black pepper



1 Blend the beans and everything together - it's up to you how smooth or textured you make the paté.
