“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.

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

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

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.
