* If you are using canned beans don’t forget to the rinse and drain well.
* I normally use freshly boiled beans but you can use canned ones anytime, they taste almost as good.
This will cut the time of having this ready in a flash. I’m saying the canned ones taste almost as good because whenever I cook my beans I put in an onion or a chunk of leek, one carrot, half a red pepper plus a small branch of thyme and 1 tsp salt to boil together which gives the beans that extra flavour making them to absolutely die for.
I do love beans, can you say?! If the season allows instead of normal garlic use new garlic as I call it or the spring garlic, it is super amazing.
Dare just like I do and mix in for extra texture one or two super fine chopped spring onion and finely chopped red pepper and of course the chilli which can never get a miss from my dishes as I am a chilli addict as you already know.
Have you seen my chilli jam recipe posted not so long ago? Does this say what a chilli addict I am? I think it kind of ...... does ;-)
I’ve used fresh sage from the garden because that’s what I’ve had and I kind of fancied it the other day but any fresh herb would go very well with this beans pâté and it would be such a great addition to it.
Thank you for stopping by!
