- Ask an adult to preheat the oven to gas mark 6, 200°C, fan 180°C.
- Also, ask an adult to cut the tip off both ends of the garlic on a chopping board, before peeling and pressing it in the garlic press.
- Squeeze the lemon.
- Snip the leafy end of the parsley using the scissors.
- Tip the cannellini beans into the mixing bowl and mash for about 2 to 3 minutes until there are no whole ones remaining. Kids will love this part! And you could try canned butter beans instead of cannellini beans.
- Add the garlic, lemon juice and 4 spoons of sour cream to the mashed cannellini beans and mix it all together.
- Stir in the parsley. Or you could use dill instead and add spices like paprika.
- Spoon the dip into a small bowl, cover with clingfilm and ask an adult to help put it in the fridge on a shelf above any raw meat that could drip down onto the dip and contaminate it.
- To make the tortillas, add nonstick baking paper to the baking tray to stop them from sticking while they cook.
- Cut each tortilla into eighths using the scissors.
- Place the pieces on to the baking tray and brush each one with a little oil.
- Ask an adult to put them in the oven and bake for around 5 minutes until they’re toasted.
- Serve the tortillas with the delicious dip.
