4 clove(s), large

Butter Beans, cooked

2 can(s), large, drained

Medium fat soft cheese

200 g

Rosemary, Fresh

1 sprig(s), finely chopped


1 pinch

Black pepper

teaspoons, freshly ground

Carrots, raw

2 medium, chopped into sticks, to serve


  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C, fan 170°C, gas mark 5. Place the garlic cloves on a square of foil, add 2 tsp water and make a little parcel. Roast for about 15 minutes towards the top of the oven, or until the cloves are soft.
  2. Cool the garlic cloves, then squeeze out the softened pulp into a large bowl.
  3. Tip the butter beans into the bowl and add the soft cheese and rosemary. Blend with a hand-held stick blender until smooth. Alternatively, use a conventional blender or food processor to make the dip. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Serve the dip with fresh carrot sticks.


Look out for smoked garlic at farmers’ markets or a delicatessen and use 2 cloves instead of roasting regular garlic.
