And the thrift continues!
Last night i decided to make another soup for lunch today. But being breadless it seemed a little unfilling for lunchon it’s own. However i did find some in date breadsticks and Crackers. Not too keen on crackers and soup, i rummaged a little further…. a tin of Butter Beans presented themselves too me, and i remembered about that sad and sorry looking Red Pepper. On further inspection i decided it was edible so created the butter bean dip with roasted Garlic and The said red pepper and added some basil…….
1 can of butter beans
1 medium Red Pepper roughly chopped
1 plump garlic clove
6 Fresh Basil leaves
salt and pepper
Roast the pepper and garlic cloves in olive oil for 20 mins
Rinse the butter beans add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
Chill in the fridge.
So there was lunch, a healthy protein rich dip i probably would add more Basil leaves and garlic if i made it again, it was funny to have a hot mug of homemade soup with a dip and breadsticks and crackers but somehow being the type of person whom loves to pick at food it worked for me!.
I found a third of a cantaloupe melon in the fridge too so we finished that up at the end of our meal.
It is still giving me a great inspiration staying out of the shops and eating food that is in rather than constantly shopping.
