    This delicious white bean cashew dip has a healthy secret: fiber!  So you can snack smart :)  Thanks so much to Laura Theodore, amazing vegan chef and author of the vegan cookbook, Jazzy Vegetarian Classics.

    Chef’s Note: For a nut-free dip, replace the cashews with an additional can (15 ounces) of white beans. Start with 1 tablespoon water, (instead of 2) and add a bit more water, as needed to achieve the desired consistency. Creamy and low fat too!


    1 can (15 ounces) white beans, drained and rinsed
    ½ cup raw cashews
    2 tablespoons filtered or spring water
    4 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
    1 clove garlic
    ½ teaspoon sea salt
    ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
    2 tablespoons sweet red or orange pepper, diced
    Fresh dill or parsley sprigs, for garnish (optional)


    1. Put the white beans, cashews, water, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and cayenne pepper in a high performance blending appliance and process until smooth and creamy. Do not over-process.

    2. Transfer to a pretty bowl and fold in the diced pepper. Top with dill (if using). Serve with carrot sticks, celery sticks, pepper sticks or whole-grain crackers.
