  • Oil for frying
  • 1 small onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 large ripe tomato, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove 
  • 1 cup cooked white beans, well drained
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper


  1. Heat oil in a frying pan and fry the onion on high heat until light golden brown (around 5 minutes)
  2. Add tomatoes and stir
  3. Crush the garlic, add to the pan and cook for around 5 minutes, until most of the liquid has evaporated.
  4. Put the beans in a bowl, add the vegetables, salt and pepper, and mix (you can set aside some of the vegetables as a garnish for serving).
  5. Blend in a food processor or using a hand blender.


  • Beans can be replaced with other cooked legumes
  • Quick version: replace the fresh tomato with 2 tablespoons of crushed tomatoes (not tomato paste); skip the onion and the frying stage, and add the crushed garlic while blending.
  • We recommend adding fresh herbs: basil, parsley, dill, cilantro or mint.
  • The spread can be made with fried mushrooms and onions instead of tomatoes.
