Blanco Niño Fried Black Bean Dip with Sobrasada

Autumn has well and truly set in and the same goes for getting cosy and eating comforting food. Bye-bye cold salads, hello unctuous one pot wonders and earthy, warming snacking, like this new, hot, fried black bean dip created by Carlos.

In case you’re wondering, sobrasada is a Balearic island delicacy with a softer texture to its better-known counterpart, chorizo (which you can also use instead of sobrasada). Like all good things, this dip takes time. You’ll need to soak your black beans overnight – but you could also use tinned ones (we won’t tell anyone!). Let us know what you think.


This recipe makes about 850g of beans, or a 20cm diameter sharing bowl.
