Pair this dip with your favorite dipping snacks - carrots, celery, flax crackers, rice crackers - for a healthy-delicious snacking platter. You will be a lucky snacker with this on your table...

1 can white cannellini beans (1 1/2 cups) - drain/rinse in hot water
1 cup kale (I actually used frozen kale! But fresh works too)
4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tsp lemon juice + generous pinch of lemon zest
1/2 tsp fine black pepper
3 dashes of cayenne
1/4 cup raw cashews (no need to soak if using a high speed blender of food processor)
1 1/2 Tbsp tahini, roasted, organic
1/4+ cup warm water
1/4 cup chopped parsley, flat-leaf
optional: garlic powder or roasted garlic

To make:

1. Add all ingredients to high speed blender of Vitamix. Blend from low to high until silky and smooth. Add a few extra splashes of water or drizzles of oil if needed to blend smooth. (It will firm up quite a bit in the fridge)

2. Pour in serving dish and chill in fridge for 1 hour or overnight. You could serve right away or warm if desired as well.

3. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil on top and fresh parsley to garnish.

Serve with: flax crackers, carrot sticks, rice crackers, toasty bread and more.


vegan, makes about 2 1/2 cups
