“Cheesy” Vegan Bean Dip.

I’ve talked about this before, but it’s worth mentioning again.  I love dips.  Bean dip, hummus, baba ganoush, guacamole – you name it, I’m dipping into it.  I often claim I could survive on nothing but a “dip diet.” 

Just in time for the Super Bowl, this cheese-free-but-tastes-cheesy bean dip would be a great thing to serve or take along to a party.  I’m from Ohio (Who Dey!) and Casey is from Indiana, so we don’t really have any vested interest in this year’s game, but if forced I will always pick a Manning.  Even more than loving to see the Giants win will be watching Brady lose, and I’ll be snacking on this dip while cracking jokes about him being sponsored by Ugg and Stetson.

If you are looking for other delicious appetizers and snack ideas for your Super Bowl celebrations, I would highly recommend my Healthy Vegan Spinach Artichoke Dip.  If you check out the new recipe search engine over on Recipage, you’ll can also search by the keyword “Super Bowl” and find many more great recipes, new blogs, and tasty ideas!  (Seriously, check out the adorable Candy Footballs from Sugar Hero!)

"Cheesy" Vegan Black Bean Dip

by Emily Malone

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: none

Ingredients (2 cups)

  • 1 can tri-bean blend (kidney, pinto, and black)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (or to taste)
  • tortilla chips & veggies (for dipping!)


Rinse and drain beans. I used a tri-bean blend of kidney, pinto, and black beans, but you can use the bean of your choice!

IMG_8038 (420x640)

Add all ingredients to food processor, and blend until smooth!  So ridiculously simple. 

IMG_8027 (640x425)

Serve with tortilla chips and sliced veggies for your appetizer or party! 

IMG_8034 (640x410)

No matter who wins the Super Bowl, this recipe will definitely be a hit at the party.  It tastes like a cheesy bean dip, but has no actual cheese, so it’s something everyone can dip into and enjoy.

Go Giants!

Yum! I also love dips, and this one looks amazing! Definite score, or should I say touchdown! Unless my team is playing, the food and the commercials are the best part, and it’s so much nicer to have foods everyone can enjoy. Thanks for the great recipe, and I’m looking forward to checking for other ideas on Recipage.

It is funny that I have recently fell upon your blog. I currently live in Cincinnati (not a fan of the Bengals). I am from East Tennessee so a big Peyton Manning fan from way back. This year with the Colts has been so sad. Like you said, if it can’t be Peyton,I would rather it be Eli than Tom Brady.
Anyway, dip sounds great. I will be trying it out.


Tami     at 1:25 pm

There is an article about why so many people hate the parriots in the Boston globe today…I don’t share your opinions about Tom but I do think it’s funny people dislike them so much….go pats! Title town….. :)


Jules Reply:

Masshole transplanted to Rhody here! New England girl all the way! I love that people love to hate our team…makes it even sweeter when we win!


Maura K Reply:

Amen Jules! Go PATS!


Melissa Reply:

Agreed. I’m a New Englander turned Tennessean… I love to listen to people in this state talk about the Patriots and all they want for the Superbowl is to see the Pat’s lose… I can’t wait until they beat the Giant’s so I can rub it in their faces!

p.s. I also can’t wait to make this dip and bring it to the Superbowl party I’ll be attending!

Go Pats :)


Leah Reply:

PATS (also from New England)!!

so many things I love here narconon rehab. So many things. Mostly you, then the wine… then the cheese…


Jen Correa @ Mom's Gotta Run Reply:

can you link that article?


Mari     at 1:26 pm

Maybe a dumb question, but what does the yeast do and does it affect the taste? Looks like a winner and I had never heard of a tri-bean blend…that would be great for chili!


Amy S. Reply:

Nutritional yeast is deactivated and not like regular yeast at all. It has a cheesy/nutty flavor, and provides protein and B vitamins.


Nicole     at 1:28 pm

Oooh, you can’t bust on the Patriots! :) We Boston readers of your blog love him too much!


Emily Malone Reply:

Haha I know. :) I really am kidding. He makes it so easy though!


Jules Reply:

you want to see Brady lose? that’s it- I’m unsubscribing. ;)


Tami Reply:

haha is right, we’ll see you is laughing come the end of the game :)


Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen)     at 1:28 pm

I wouldn’t say I’m a dip girl, but I LOVE bean dips…add mooch and I’m sold. This looks perfect for some chip dippage!


Melissa @ HerGreenLife     at 1:28 pm

This reminds me that I haven’t made hummus in quite awhile. Maybe I’ll just have to try this instead — any kind on bean-y dip sounds good to me!


Anna @ Blissfully Banana     at 1:30 pm

Oh this looks amazingly delicious! :)
Perfect for Superbowl and healthy too! I will totally make this if I go to a Superbowl party!


becca @ blueberry smiles     at 1:32 pm

Looks great! Think it could it would work in a blender instead of a food processor?


Julie (A Case of the Runs)     at 1:44 pm

Hmmm, must try this. Cheesy beans are a weakness of mine, and if this tastes like it, that’d be amazing.


HRCK the Herald     at 1:46 pm

I totally agree re: living on dips! ESPECIALLY if you added something of similar consistency– frozen yogurt! :)


Leslie     at 1:53 pm

Oh Emily – I usually agree with and/or love everything you say…but as a Philly Eagles fan, I have to express the gravest concern about your SB choice. In Philly, you can get run out of town for not hating the Giants!

I could actually care less! I just got a good laugh at this, and you’re right that Tom Brady is insufferable!


sallymae     at 1:54 pm

This does look easy! Are there any substitutions for nutritional yeast? I’m not quite sure what it is…


Gina @ Running to the Kitchen     at 1:59 pm

This looks so simple and I bet delicious. I’ve become obsessed with adding nutritional yeast to dips/spreads/hummus. Love it!


Colleen     at 2:00 pm

Oh no, you’re a Pats hater!!!
I will make your bean dip anyway because it sounds delicious and I have all of the ingredients on hand.


amanda d     at 2:04 pm

i will be making this often, i can tell. i also make fun of Brady for those same reasons!!


Rachel     at 2:15 pm

I don’t know much about Tom Brady, but I get the impression he’s the kind of guy who fixes his hair at halftime. Also he looks like Luke from The OC, and that weirds me out.

Eli, on the other hand, is a total cutie-pie, and seems so nice. I’ll be rooting for the Giants.


Sarah     at 2:21 pm

Those are my favorite beans for chili! I’m excited to try this as, I too, am a big dip fan. Can’t say the same for football though…


Haley S     at 2:23 pm

That looks awesome! I really need to get my butt in gear and get a food processor…and get over my fear of nutritional yeast. I feel like this would be a good recipe for that :)


Balancing Sylvia     at 2:29 pm

Just when I’m wondering to myself, “I wonder how I can incorporate nutritional yeast in my diet,” you come out with this easy peasy recipe. Thanks lady!


Tosha     at 2:50 pm

WHO-DEY!! You need to get some Field Roast Hot Dogs, make some vegan Skyline Chili, and have some coneys YUM!


Steph     at 3:00 pm

I always loved your blog before but the fact that you are rooting for the Giants takes it to a new level.


Michelle     at 3:13 pm

Looks great! I just made a roasted veggie soup with nutritional yeast that turned out really good and was wondering what to do with the rest of it(http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=1426869)
Question- do you drain the beans or just dump the whole thing in?


Michelle Reply:

Okay, just noticed you already answered my question in your instructions :)


Emily     at 4:06 pm

“if forced I will always pick a Manning.” This made me chuckle. :) This looks awesome…now I am hoping I get invited to a Super Bowl party just so I can bring this along!


Gina (Yogattude)     at 4:17 pm

awwwww…..booo….HUGE Bradey fans over here;) I mean, how can you not love that gorgeous face…not to mention he is UofM alum!!!!


Gina (Yogattude) Reply:

and by Bradey I mean Brady;)


Sneakers2Sandals     at 4:18 pm

I love a good dip and I love it even more when you find the perfect chip/tostido/cracker/bread round to put it on and you get that perfect scoop of perfection!

This weekend I’m making a pesto dip :)


Army Amy*     at 4:25 pm

I can’t stand Brady, but Wes Welker, another Patriot, played fb at my alma matter, Texas Tech. I wish Wes could win and Brady could lose; that’s my ideal outcome!*


Kristen @ Change of Pace     at 5:15 pm

When I read the title of your post I was like “OHHHH nutritional yeast in beans!” Sure enough you added nutritional yeast. Which is genius! Cannot wait to try this recipe.


Emily @LivingLongfellow     at 6:39 pm

So I’m intrigued by nutritional yeast. I’m experimenting with veganism, and I keep hearing that nutritional yeast is about as close as i’ll get to making something cheesy. It doesn’t taste cheesy right? More about the texture?


Rebecca @ Miss Magnolia Munches & Moves     at 6:51 pm

I’m supporting the Giants, too, because I feel like even though Louisiana’s Saints lost out, the Manning’s are kind of a LA institution. Go Giants!


Staci     at 6:55 pm

Not only does that dip look delicious; I completely agree with your choice. I’m from Michigan so also no real interest but the Manning brothers are my BOYZ!


Megan     at 7:00 pm

I am such a dip fanatic! I always say hummus is one of my food groups. Obsessed. Love your simple and delicious recipes!


Laura     at 7:22 pm

Oh Emily, I am SO going to make this! I am obsessed with dips and obsessed with beans and nutritional yeast right now!

Can’t wait to try it!


Alex @ Raw Recovery     at 8:20 pm

This looks so yummy! I’m a dip person all the way but can’t partake in most (without digestive issues) because I’m lactose-intolerant. I’m going to try making this in my new Vitamix!


Elisabeth     at 10:12 pm

Yay for some Giants (and Eli Manning) love – big Giants fan here :)


MA*     at 10:25 pm

“I will always pick a Manning.” #thatsmygirl :)


Angela @ Happy Fit Mama     at 2:59 am

I can totally tell where you’re from. If you live in New England, everyone is against the Mannings. I won’t hold it against you AND I’ll be making this dip ASAP! ;)


Cyndi     at 3:02 am

Dip looks delicious. Can’t wait to try it! Also a Bengals fan, so I could care less about the “big game”!!


Anna     at 5:13 am

This looks so good. Right up my alley. And such simple ingredients…I may not watch football but I’ll make this dip :)


Ida     at 6:11 am

Emily………………don’t be a hater!!!!!!!!!!!! GO PATS!!!!!!

Where would I find N. Yeast, say in Whole foods???????????

What does it look like???????????


Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers     at 6:26 am

The dip looks great! I have never used nutritional yeast, but I should give it a try. I’m not vegan, but my curosity on trying new things gets tome. I guess thats it, I’ll pick some up today!


Katie     at 6:39 am

Watch what you say about the Pats or you might start a riot on your comment board. Remember Boston has a lot of pride. GO PATS!!! Tom Brady is hot and one of the few reasons I can survive watching a football game!!! :)Thanks for the yummy dip recipe.


Ida Reply:

Riot, Riot, Riot!!!!!!!!! Tom Brady is talented, sexy, smart and rich. That’s why people hate. Go Pats! We are so proud of you. Love you anyway Emily! Even though you are sooooooooo wrong on this one.


Chase - the CHASE project     at 7:34 am

Sounds delish! Go Giants!


Amber @ Busy, Bold, Blessed     at 7:45 am

Yes!!!! GO GIANTS :D


Rachel @ My Naturally Frugal Family     at 7:51 am

I am huge fan of dip (both my husband and the stuff you put on a chip).

This looks delicious and something I would love to whip for the weekend.


Kelly     at 7:52 am

Emily, Emily, Emily…..this dip looks fabulous – I can’t wait to make it for the superbowl and enjoy it while watching the Pats take home the superbowl trophy! :)


Ali     at 8:10 am

Brady has more rings than those two Manning brothers combined. I love him because he wins, not because he’s gorgeous (which he is) or looks hot in Uggs (which he does). Don’t hate :)


Lauren (Maillard's Mistress)     at 8:36 am

I am so making this! I’d been wanting hummus but didn’t want to shell out the $$ for tahini. Perfect!

Here in Indy, it feels like we’re getting ready to host the Olympics. Srsly, it’s getting a little absurd with road closures, etc. I definitely echo your sentiment about Manning though!


Marie@feedingfive     at 9:44 am

I actually need to make a dip for the superbowl and this looks great.


Noelle (@singerinkitchen)     at 10:10 am

I am glad that it does not have too much oil! I am making this this next week! Thanks Emily!


Heidi from BundlesOfHugs     at 10:54 am

So simple! And, looks yummy. You could do so much with that dip.. quesadillas
anyone? I think I might try this tomorrow :)


Amber K     at 11:30 am

I never have an actual interest in who wins. I’m all about watching the commercials. Plus I think if I watch it enough I might actually be able to understand what is going on!

This dip looks like a winner! Pinned it for later :)


Monica     at 11:30 am

Hahaha, love the Brady jabs!


emmycooks     at 12:21 pm

Yum! This looks delish as a taco filling!


Jennifer (The Gourmetour)     at 1:28 pm

Uh-oh. I’m no longer making your bean dip for the superbowl. Can’t jinx the chance of my pats losing by eating a hater-dip. We new englanders are superstitious. I guesssss I can keep reading your blog though.


Rachel @ The Avid Appetite     at 1:32 pm

yay Giants! I am a big Giants fan and cannot wait for them to destroy Brady and the Pats. I found this A-mazing article in The Onion about Brady which just makes me crack up:


time to take him down a notch!!


Rachel C     at 1:57 pm

Do you have a recipe for “Vegan Skyline Chili”? I remember reading a post about it, and I don’t recall seeing a recipe (and I checked Recipage too). If you have one, I would love if you would one day post the recipe. :)


Kelly Reply:

I found this one


Jeralyn     at 3:32 pm

What are the advantages of nutritional yeast…exactly what is it???


Heidi from BundlesofHugs Reply:

It’s a powder or flakes and you just add it to food. It gives vegan food a “cheesy” taste but it’s mostly to supply your body with vitamin b12 since vegans lack that vitamin in their diet. It’s pretty good, you can find it in the bulk bins at wholefoods or natural food stores if you’re up to trying it.


Anna S     at 6:28 pm

This looks delish! Great for my vegan husband and my 19 month old who likes dips! Can’t wait to make it.


Kelly     at 6:35 pm

This looks really yummy… though I completely disagree with your choice of teams :)


Dorota     at 12:53 am

Looks like a great dip. Thanks for posting the recipe!


Lauren @ Fun, Fit and Fabulous!     at 7:30 pm

I am such a dip person as well. When my husband dips he just barely gets anything on his chip or veggie, while I on the other hand, load as much dip as possible onto my dip transporter of choice. This recipe looks delicious and I have evething I need minus the beans. To the store I go! :)


STUFT Mama     at 10:42 pm

Well this just looks delicious! I almost forgot Super Bowl was next wekeend. Ha ha! I’ve been thinking about you and your little one! It’s going by so fast, isn’t it? :)You are one amazing mama! :)


heidi     at 1:44 pm

Ha! I always tell people that my last meal has to be chips and dip. All kinds. I love dip too. This looks delicious. I can’t wait to try it, and it’s vegan.


Sarah     at 8:49 pm

Go Giants! :)
