Bigella

COUNTRY:

Had you spoken to us a few weeks ago, a broad bean dip wouldn’t be our first choice for a party. That’s all changed now we’ve tried this Bigella recipe from Malta. The cool blend of herbs and kick from the Tabasco combine beautifully with the mashed up broad beans to produce a refreshingly tasty dip. Plus it’s mega healthy, so that’s always a bonus.
