Not Houmous

This dip is perfect for a light lunch or a mid-afternoon snack. It can be made with whatever tin of beans you have in the cupboard, or chickpeas if you want to make traditional humous. I think the cannelloni beans work really well though and give a nice smooth texture.

You can mix flavours up to vary it - I think garlic or chilli oil would work as a good alternative to truffle oil depending on what you an get your hands on.
