If you’re someone who loves a good dip, then be prepared to fall in-love with this recipe! My Healthy White Bean Dip is a delicious, flavorful, protein-packed dip that’s perfect to serve with veggies, chips, or to simply eat by the spoon – I won’t judge! Plus, this recipe happens to be gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan-friendly, making it the perfect healthy dip for everyone to enjoy!
I’m going to be honest, here: when it comes to snacks, there is truly nothing better than chips and a good dip. From hummus to guacamole to the BEST creamy vegan queso, I love a nice, hearty dip as a snack anytime of day. But while chips and dip are often thought of as unhealthy, I’m here to remind you that they don’t have to be! By using simple, whole foods, you can create delicious, healthy dips that satisfy both your taste buds and your dietary needs. 😉
And I love this white bean dip in particular, because it is packed with protein! Beans are a great plant-based source of protein, and are sure to keep you full and satisfied. Plus, we’re kicking this dip up a notch by blending our beans with sautéed onions, which add the most delicious, aromatic flavor. All of this to say, if I haven’t convinced you to run to your kitchen and make this yet… GO DO IT! You won’t regret it, especially once those snack time cravings hit!
All you need are 7 simple and easy ingredients to make this recipe! Plus, you may even have these ingredients already sitting in your pantry.
Making this dip couldn’t be any easier! Simply start by heating a pan on the stove over medium heat and add in oil of your choice.
Next, once the oil is hot, add in your onions, salt, pepper, and cumin and sauté for about 4-5 minutes, or until the onions start to soften. Then, remove the pan from the heat.
Add onions, along with rinsed beans, lemon juice, garlic, and olive oil to a food processor or high-speed blender and blend for about 4 minutes, until desired consistency is achieved. If you like it more smooth, you can blend it for longer, or if you like it with a little more texture (like I do!) then you can stop it earlier.
Then, simply remove the cover and taste, and adjust seasonings as needed. Serve with chips, veggies, or crackers, and enjoy! Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week.
