    Thanks to Laura Theodore, the Jazzy Vegetarian, for this versatile vegan dip!

    Laura says, “This yummy, ‘cheezy’ tasting dip does double duty as a sandwich spread. White beans take the place of the cheese and raw cashews add a creamy texture. Together they successfully mimic the flavor of a rich, creamy cheese dip!”

    1 can (15 ounces) white beans, drained and rinsed
    1/2 cup raw cashews
    2 tablespoons filtered or spring water, plus more as needed
    4 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
    1 clove garlic
    1/2 teaspoon sea salt
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    2 tablespoons diced sweet red pepper, plus more for garnish


    1. Put the white beans, cashews, water, lemon juice, garlic, salt and cayenne pepper in a blender or food processor and process until smooth and creamy. Add more water if thinner consistency is desired. Do not over process.

    2. Transfer to a pretty bowl and fold in the diced pepper. Top with more diced pepper for garnish. Serve with carrot sticks, sweet pepper sticks, or tortilla chips!
