This was an experiment in our deli counter (and we do like experimenting on our customers). A rather successful one. So we thought we’d share it with you. A super-simple cupboard staple party dip which could double as an accompaniment to sausages, a filling for jacket potatoes or a sandwich spread. Perfect Snackistan fare in other words. Ingredients (for a fairly big bowlful): 1 tin red kidney beans, drained and rinsed 2 tablespoons creamed labneh (or cream cheese) 3 medium tomatoes, diced 1 bunch chives, chopped 2 cloves garlic (optional), minced 1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin juice of one lime salt to taste Blend the first two ingredients thoroughly, and stir in everything else. Serve with hot bread/crudites… Told you it was simple.
