The Azul kitchen: Rosemary Chili Dip

The combination of the rosemary and chili work surprisingly well – and this a fantastically healthy alternative to creamy spreads. Easy to make, full of protein and really satisfying. It’s a winner all round. 

Rosemary chili dip – serves 4

Cannellini beans are excellent for dips and to give soups a creamy consistency. They have a low glycemic index and are high in fibre.


  • 250g cannellini beans, cooked and drained
  • 100ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
  • 2 stalk of fresh rosemary
  • 1–2 hot chilli or cayenne peppers
  • Sea salt and pepper


  1. Add 3 tablespoons of olive oil to a pan and add the garlic, chilli and rosemary.
  2. Fry on a low heat for a few minutes.
  3. Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend to a puree.
  4. Season with sea salt and pepper.
