Lemony White Bean Dip

RECIPES – SIDES, VEGAN

This lemony white bean dip is lusciously creamy and a nutrient-packed alternative to hummus. 

Don’t get me wrong, hummus is a delicious and nutritious pick, but it’s always good to switch things up, to get a wide and varied array of nutrients.

Why I LOVE this Lemony White Bean Dip

Firstly, its delicious.

Secondly, it’s versatile. Besides for dipping your Mary’s Gone Crackers, veggie slices, or hey, just your spoon, it doubles as a protein-packed spread for toast. I’ve even used it instead of tomato sauce on a cauliflower crust pizza.

Last, but of course not least, it’s nutritious. This recipe calls for a white bean called Navy beans, which got their moniker stemming from the fact that they were a staple food for the US Navy during the early 20th century.

Benefits of Navy Beans

One cup of Navy beans delivers a whopping:

  • 19 grams of fiber (76% DV)- the pipes will be clean with this one
  • 15 grams of protein
  • 64% DV of folate – a B Vitamin that supports nervous and cardiovascular system health
  • 24% iron – supports energy production
  • 24% magnesium – supports bone and nervous system health, enhances control of blood sugar
