THE SIMPLE SIDE DISH

Don’t forget to add these vibrant veg-packed dips to your basket – they work in so many ways, from easy, healthy snacks to picnic accompaniments and barbecue extras.

Trading your naughty snacks for something lighter can sometimes feel like a chore. Not with this tasty vegetable dip selection, though. It’s a fab four consisting of a sweet beetroot dip with a touch of crème fraiche, a roasted carrot dip with a hint of cumin, a fresh pea and fragrant mint option and one with zingy red and piquillo peppers. With their crayon-bright colours and endless dunking possibilities, these will appeal to kids as well as grown-ups, and they make a perfect little extra for an alfresco affair. Dip into every flavour with crudités or slivers of pitta, or make a quick and simple supper by spreading the red pepper dip over ready-made puff pastry before topping with goat’s cheese and roasting in the oven until golden and flaky.
