Preparation

Step 1

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl until combined. Sprinkle top of the dip with a little extra ground green peppercorns.

Place the green beans onto the baking sheet, making sure they are not touching. Bake until crisp and golden, about 20 to 25 minutes. Finish by sprinkling a little Reluctant Trading Icelandic Flake Sea Salt, to taste.
