- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 cup (150g) diced yellow onion
- 1/4 cup (60ml) vegetable broth
- 1 (15oz/425g) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed (1 1/3 cups)
- 1/4 cup raw unsalted cashews, soaked
- 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
- 1 tablespoon tahini
- 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic (2 cloves)
- 3/4 teaspoon Celtic sea salt, plus more to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika
- Pinch of cayenne pepper
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped flat leaf parsley, to serve
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped chives, to serve
In a small skillet over medium heat, sauté the olive oil and onion for about 5 minutes, until soft and translucent. Allow to cool slightly.
Throw the broth, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, beans, cashews, salt, paprika, cayenne, and cooked onions into your KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series blender, and blast on high for 30 to 60 seconds, until smooth and creamy. Tweak the salt to taste.
Transfer to a bowl, and stir through the parsley and chives.
Serve with veggie sticks, crackers, tortilla chips, or slather on sandwiches or wraps. The dip will keep in the fridge in a sealed container for about 5 days.
