This Cannellini Bean Spread is a perfect way to get your kid/s involved in preparing their own food. It is so quick and simple to make and really only involves mashing, mixing and tasting. I love giving Finn the task of mashing. It isn’t often that he can sit still for longer than a minute but he really stays focussed when in the kitchen. I know I can leave him to this job without a great deal of help and he is so proud to have made lunch “all by himself”.
Cannellini Bean Spread
- 1 tin cannellini beans (drained)
- 1/2 tsp crushed garlic
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Mash the beans in a bowl until smooth.
- Add the remaining ingredients and mix until combined.
Why not try adding some fresh herbs.
