Peanuts and Beans

Together in a tasty hummus-like concoction. Again using up what was in the cupboards. H really liked this and he is not a big peanut, especially peanut butter type things, fan, so that shows how delicious this is. Its simple too and made from stuff that's easy to find.

Thai inspired White Bean and Peanut Dip
Makes 1 ½ C

1 C cooked White Beans – drained and rinsed if canned
½ C roasted, salted Peanuts
1 T smooth Natural Peanut Butter
2 T Soy Sauce
1 T Thai Sweet Chili Sauce
2 cloves Garlic – grated
1 t fresh Ginger – grated
2 T Lime Juice
2 T Peanut Oil

Blend all ingredients until smooth. Add splashes of water if too thick.
In this photo the dip (foreground) is shown with White Bean Hummus which I've posted about before, we had them for a starter with nacho chips over the weekend.
