This houmous combines the delicious flavours of butter beans, lemon, olive oil, Oregano, Garlic and Chilli. Great served as a dip for a starter or to enjoy with pre-dinner drinks. Also makes a fantastic healthy snack for the children: just leave out the chilli if they prefer.
Place the Oregano in a cup and pour over the boiling water. Leave to stand for 15 minutes to infuse.
Add the lemon juice, olive oil and Chillies to the Oregano and stir well.
Set 6 butter beans aside to garnish and place the remaining beans, Garlic and half the lemon zest in a food processor and blend together. Slowly add the olive oil mixture through the funnel, whilst pulsing until the houmous is smooth and creamy. Season to taste. Transfer to a serving bowl, crumble over the feta and garnish with the reserved butter beans, remaining lemon zest and sun-dried tomatoes.
