Healthy Snacking Dip Formula

I LOVE dips! From Hummus to Bean Dip, or Mediterranean Lentil Dip and beyond! And best thing about them, after eating them of course, is how easy they are to make!

It really just comes down to 4 things:

Beans/Legumes + Oil + Acid + Herbs and Spices

Start with about 1 1/2 Cups or 1 15-oz. Can of Beans or other Legumes

Examples:

  • Chickpeas
  • Black beans
  • Borlotti beans
  • Butter beans
  • Cannellini beans
  • Edamame
  • Lentils

Oil

Examples:

  • Plant-Based Unsweetened yogurt
  • Nut butter
  • Sunflower seed butter
  • Tahini

Some Brightening Acidity

Examples

  • Citrus ( lemon, lime, grapefruit or orange) juice
  • Citrus ( lemon, lime, or orange) zest
  • Apple Cider Vinegar

Fresh or Dried Herbs & Spices

Examples

  • Chives
  • Cilantro
  • Cumin
  • Dill
  • Fennel
  • Ginger
  • Parsley
  • Sage
