This past Christmas season, a few friends and I put together a Vegan Holiday Potluck here in LA and gathered the community together for an afternoon of good food, friends, and of course, dogs 🙂 I wanted to bring a healthy oil-free option to the potluck, and this is what I came up with.
Chris and I went to the Hollywood Farmer’s Market and came home with among other things, 2 fresh sourdough baguettes + dill & chives, two ingredients we use often on our avocado toasts for breakfast, in salads, and now in our newfound favorite, bean dips! We went to Whole Foods following the farmer’s market to pick up grains and legumes for his One-Pot Chili Spiced Lentils & Rice recipe that he was putting together for the potluck, and when we were browsing the aisle of the market, I was inspired by the array of beans and legumes to make a dip/spread for the baguettes we had purchased.
This recipe is packed with flavor, and it is a nutrient powerhouse! Where do vegans get their protein? Here is where! Chickpeas have 2.4 g per cup, and canellini beans have a whopping 6 g + the nutritional yeast adds a good source of B12 🙂
If you haven’t already tried dill on avocado toasts or in dips or spreads, GET ON IT! I can’t believe I was missing out on it for so long. My mom had dill growing the garden for the longest time and I should have taken advantage of it at the time + dill contains a significant amount of vitamin A and vitamin C.Make sure you tag me on Instagram @sweetsimplevegan or twitter @sweetsimpleveg and hashtag #sweetsimplevegan if you recreate any of my recipes, I love to see your photos!Print
