When I go to a party, I am all over the veggie platter. I mean, being vegan and all, that is my go to snack at a party. And what’s the best part of the veggie platter? The dip of course!
Most dips are loaded with fat though. The good news is, this one isn’t and it tastes just as good! The secret ingredient is the white beans. It gives this dip a creamy texture.
Healthy White Bean Pesto Dip
2 cups white beans (We use dried beans and soak them overnight and then boil them in the morning until they are soft. About 20 minutes.)
10 leaves of basil
3 cloves of garlic
1 T nutritional yeast
1/4 cup olive oil
1 T dried parsley
1/2 T dried mint
4-5 T water
Throw everything in the food processor and blend until smooth. That’s it. Easy. You can use this recipe as a dip, or as a sandwich spread. Today I spread some of it on whole wheat lavash bread with some cucumbers and red peppers. It was yummy! It would also make a good pasta pesto sauce too. I hope you enjoy it.
