Artichoke and Bean Dip with Sugar Snap Peas

S.Arti.Dip - Copy
Beach days demand easy eating – although possibly something a bit healthier and more inclined towards a diet plan than a scotch egg or packet of chips. Why not pack this tasty and moreish snack – the artichoke hearts sing of summer, while the beans give a great protein kick and a smooth, creamy finish. To pack, simply spoon the dip into an air-tight container and wrap the veggies in foil.

Jennifer’s Tip:

Substitute the sugar snaps with corn chips or oat cakes or any other raw vegetables if you fancy. This can be kept in the fridge for up to four days.
