Course Antipasto, Snack
Cuisine Italian
Servings 8


  • Food processor or Blender
  • Chopping-board


  • 1 can Butter beans
  • 1 can 4 bean mix
  • 1 small clove Garlic
  • Fresh parmesan
  • Table Salt
  • 1 Handful of parsley
  • 1 Handful of basil
  • Extra virgin Olive oil EVOO
  • Dry mixed herbs
  • A small loaf of fresh focaccia bread


  • Preheat your oven to 150 degrees celcius (This is in preparation to crisp up your focaccia later on..!)
  • Now the fun begins! Grab your food processor or blender, and add 4 or 5 table spoons of extra virgin olive oil.
  • Then, add your garlic.
  • Add ½ of each can of beans.
  • Turn the food processor on and start blending!
  • If the mixture is too dense, slowly add ½ glass of water and mix once again for at least a full minute.
  • Add parsley and basil to the mixture and fire it up once again for an additional minute or so.
  • Now, it’s time to add your remaining beans and a pinch of salt, blend once again and your dip is almost perfect!
  • Finally, grate some fresh parmesan into the mix, for a final kick of flavour along with 1 ½ tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • Now, place the whole focaccia into the oven for around 2 minutes.
  • Blast your mix for one more minute and your bean dip will be ready and smelling delicious!
  • Grab a chopping board and remove the bread from the oven, careful not to burn yourself.
  • The bread should be nice and crunchy – if not, leave it in the oven for just a little longer, but make sure it doesn’t go hard.
  • Now, slice your bread into small strips.
  • E ora si mangia, Vincenzo’s Plate….Enjoy!
