Spiced Avocado & White Bean Dip (Vegan, GF)

July 6, 2020
Packed with healthy fats and protein, this creamy, nourishing avocado and white bean dip might be your new favorite dip! It comes together quickly in a blender, or you can mash it finely using a fork. The cumin and (optional) chili create the ideal contrast with savory, smooth flavor of the avocado and beans. Why not try this dip for your next platter? it's perfect for a vegan charcuterie or cheeseboard.

1. Cut the avocadoes in half, remove the core, and cut into small cubes. Add to a blender (or bowl if mashing instead of blending).

2. Drain the beans. Add to the blender.

3. Add all herbs and spices. Blend/mash all ingredients until smooth.

4. Transfer to a condiment dish. Top with a sprinkle more of oregano and cumin, plus some sesame seeds. Easy!

It’s so simple to make. The dip will be rich and creamy with a hint of spice.

You can also use this dip as a topping for Buddha bowls too. Add 1/3 cup of olive oil to drizzle on salad or as a pasta sauce. I’ve also added a squeeze of lemon to this dip which tastes great and helps prevent the avocado from turning brown too quickly.

This time, I served this dip with carrot sticks, pistachios and olives. Feel free to arrange them in an Instagram-friendly fashion as I did here.😊
