    These white beans are flavoured with herbs, onion and garlic, then served over crostini or bruschetta. A lovely make ahead starter or nibble that's easy on the pocket, too!

    A healthier alternative to the deep-fried onion bhajis you find in Indian restaurants. These are baked and exceedingly tasty. They are sweet, tender and very moreish. Serve as an appetiser or starter.
