This zesty white bean dip is really easy and delicious. Just blend, chill, and serve with crackers, veggie sticks, or slather it on sandwiches and wraps. This white bean dip is dairy-free, and loaded with fresh flavor.

One of my top tips when making dips is to sauté some diced yellow onion and minced garlic with a bit of olive oil in a pan for about 5 minutes, and then blend that cooked mixture into the dip. The cooked onion and garlic gives dips a delightful depth of flavor.

A mixture of nutritional yeast and lemon juice gives this white bean dip a subtle cheesy flavor. You could add more nutritional yeast for a really pronounced effect, but I think this white bean dip is more balanced and dimensional with just a hint of this ingredient, which gets overpowering in large quantities.

The paprika and cayenne adds another layer of flavor. Alternatively, you could throw in some fresh minced chiles or red pepper flakes. But, I like this blend.

Chill this dip in the fridge for a few hours to allow the flavors to fully mesh and for the dip to thicken slightly.

I love serving this white bean dip with cucumber slices, but it’s also really popular with corn chips or crackers, and delicious slathered on sandwiches and wraps.

Many of you emailed me asking about the KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series blender since I announced my partnership with them. As I mentioned, it was a huge move, and one I thought about for a year. I also used their new blender extensively to make sure I was making the right decision.

To answer your questions:

Yes, I really love it.

Yes, it really is the most powerful machine available and is better than any other high-speed blender,


Yes, it’s the best blender I’ve ever used.

I use my blender about four times a day to make a variety of different recipes such as smoothies, cocktails, soups, salad dressings, condiments, sauces, desserts, natural skincare, cleaning products, and more.

I own almost every blender on the market. My team and I test all of the recipes extensively to ensure they are accessible to people all over the world blending with all kinds of different machines.

For my personal use, I always want to be using the best blender in the world.

And, that is now the KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series blender.
