© 2023 |

Don't underestimate the power of a simple can of beans. Blended with pistachios, parsley, garlic, cumin, olive oil, and lemon, they effectively transform into a creamy, luscious dip. Topped with a vine-ripened cherry tomato salad and sprinkled with dukkah and extra pistachios, this quick and delicious dip makes a simple yet impressive starter or a light lunch.

Tomato Salad
  • 140 g Pistachio kernels, toasted and unsalted (plus extra, chopped, to serve)
  • 30 g Fresh flat parsley or coriander leaves, chopped
  • 2 Garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 tsp Ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 can / 400 g Cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 Organic lemon, rind finely grated, juiced
  • 80 ml Extra virgin olive oil, plus extra, to drizzle
  • Dukkah, to sprinkle
  • Grissini or crackers, to serve
  • 250 g Tomato medley mix, halved
  • 1/4 Red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp Fresh flat parsley leaves, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Process the pistachios in a food processor until finely chopped. Add the parsley, garlic and cumin powder. Season well. Process until finely chopped. Add the drained beans, the lemon rind, juice, oil process until the bean mixture is smooth and combined.
  2. For the tomato salad combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Season. Set aside for 10 minutes to allow the flavours to develop.
  3. Spread the dip on a serving plate. Top with some of the tomato salad. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with dukkah and extra pistachios. Serve with grissini and remaining tomato salad on the side.

The salad looks delicious, thanks for sharing another yummy recipe.
Take care, have a wonderful day!

La unión frijoles-pistachos no se me hubiera ocurrido nunca. La entiendo más cuando es una crema porque así se puede dipear, y eso es lo que haré cuando la prepare, pues tomar porciones de la misma con palitos de pan es algo que nos encanta.

Those crostini look tasty, and I'd certainly want to dip into the concoction and snagged a tomato also. It sounds and looks so yummy. hugs-Erika

Looks lovely and very Middle Eastern. Levant countries usually have the best food without meat and dairy.

I can make that salad today! But please, what is dukkah? I have never heard of it.

@Granny Sue, it's a blend of nuts, seeds, spices and herbs from Egypt and the Middle East.
