Not low fat due to hummus, avocado and nuts, but all healthy fats, and full of lovely nutrients. Yum. A winner.

Butter Bean and Avocado Spread


I find I get tired of hummus very quickly, and so am often looking for an alternative. Today I had a tin of butter beans, several rapidly ripening avocados and thought that combining the two would be rather nice to use in place of hummus, or margarine, or as a dip or as anything else really.


1 tin butter beans in water, drained and rinsed

1 medium sized avocado

1 tablespoon olive oil

juice of one lemon

1 teaspoon paprika (I used sweet as this is all I have, but hot might be nicer)

splash of water to allow for smooth blending

salt and pepper to taste

fresh parsley chopped on top.



This was quite okay. Very mild and creamy tasting. A recipe for tweaking.

* I mentioned this was a recipefor tweaking. H-Gusto tried it the next day and suggested more lemon and a bit of cumin. It lifted the taste right up. P1070286
