“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!

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

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

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!

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 :)

Hahaha, love the Brady jabs!


emmycooks     at 12:21 pm

Yum! This looks delish as a taco filling!

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!!

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. :)

I found this one

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.

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! :)

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.
