Avocado Bean Dip

Last night we had what I call a “Ploughman’s Lunch” for dinner.  Or you could call it “fesper”- that’s what the Germans call it. Or really, just call it “tapas”. I pull out a bunch of little bites of stuff, like good crusty bread, a good cheese, some olives, maybe a piece of cut-up fruit, some dips…like this dip! This dip is basically guacamole that tastes a little “beany“. It was good, but probably not something I would make again (I prefer guacamole).
