Lazy lunch - spicy cannelini dip with purple sweet potato and tamari rice cakes
Sometimes (often) I can't be bothered to cook. But I still want to be healthy so that I feel as good as I possibly can. This is what I make when I can't be bothered............it's quick, easy and really tasty.
1 large purple sweet potato (or an orange sweet potato if you can't find purple)
1 can of cannelini beans
1 small garlic clove
1T extra virgin olive oil
1t shachimi togorashi (japanese spice mix) or ground chilli
Salt, to taste
Tamari rice cakes
Preheat your oven to 200c
Slice the potato into rounds about 1cm thick, place on a baking tray and into the oven
Bake for 10-15 minutes until you can easily put a fork into them
Drain and rinse the beans well. Juice the lemon. Blend the beans, juice, oil, garlic and chilli until very smooth. You can do this easily with a hand blender.
Pour the dip into a bowl, sprinkle a little more oil and chilli onto the top
Serve with the sweet potato, rice cakes and any crudite-type veg you might have.
