Recipe: Creamy Dill Bean Dip

Getting tired of your hummus and guac? Me neither. But, if you’re looking for another nutrient dense dip option, try this protein-packed bean dip. Super easy to make, delicious with veggies or pita, or as a spread in a lettuce wrap.


Cannellini beans are high in protein providing 8 grams per half cup! They are also a great source of soluble and insoluble fibre, which is good for cholesterol and blood sugar. They also contain a good amount of B vitamins including B12, iron, potassium and zinc!

Recipe:

Makes 10 – 3 tbsp servings

  • 2¼ cups BPA-free canned cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • cup chopped fresh dill
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon zested and juiced
  • 1-2 large cloves of garlic
  • sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • veggies of choice

Put all your ingredients (except for the veggies) in a food processor and blend until smooth, somewhere around 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and enjoy with sliced veggies or anything else that tickles your fancy.

Been making this for a couple of years and I love it. I use parsley instead of dill and have, at times, roasted beets and added it to the dip for an impressive guest-worthy dip. I have also added roasted garlic if I have some on hand (I roast it with the beets if I am making the beet one).

A 43-year-old man, let's call him ‘John’,  came into my practice concerned that he was no longer feeling like himself.  He was experiencing deep fatigue that was not only impacting his work performance, but also his marriage and his confidence.  His weight had increased by 25 pounds, his body felt stiff, and his endurance had significantly decreased.  John was frustrated because nothing was helping.
