Butterbean and Fresh Herb Spread
1 onion, chopped finely
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tomato, finely chopped
1 x 15 oz (400g) tinned butterbeans
1 heaped tbsp fresh basil, finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Heat the oil in a saucepan and saute the onion until translucent.
Drain the beans and mash them coarsely in a bowl. Add the beans and tomato to the saucepan, stirring well. Season to taste, cook for a minute or two, then remove from the heat.

The fresh basil lifts this dip out of the ordinary. It is substantial, and great if you are in a hurry and want a quick but filling snack.
