  • Slowly cook the red onion on a low heat for at least 15 minutes to let it caramelise. The longer the better! Add the red wine vinegar for the last minute.
  • Drain most of the water from the cannellini beans and pop in a blender.
  • Crush in the garlic, and add the onion granules and cooked onion mixture including all the oil and vinegar.
  • Blend up and season to taste. You may want to add a little more vinegar or olive oil at this point.
  • Use a silicone spatula to put the dip mixture into a small bowl.
  • Add spiders to taste!


  • Stores in the fridge for three days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
