Red Kidney Bean + Labneh Dip

red bean
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.
