leprechaun bean dip healthy


  • 1 CAN white cannellini beans (1 1/2 cups) – drained and rinsed in hot water
  • 1 CUP kale (frozen kale, but fresh works too)
  • 4 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 TBSP apple cider vinegar
  • 2 TSP lemon juice and a pinch of lemon zest
  • 1/2 TSP fine black pepper
  • 3 DASHES of cayenne
  • 1/4 CUP raw cashews (no need to soak if using a high speed blender or food processor)
  • 1 1/2 TBSP tahini, roasted
  • 1/4+ CUP warm water
  • 1/4 CUP chopped parsley, flat-leaf
  • Optional: garlic powder or roasted garlic


  1. Add all ingredients to blender or food processor. Blend from low to high until silky and smooth (add splashes of water or a little oil if needed to blend smooth – it will firm up in the fridge).
  2. Pour into a serving dish and chill in the fridge for an hour or even overnight. You could serve right away or warm if desired as well.
  3. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil on top and fresh parsley to garnish.

Serve with: rice or flax crackers, toasty bread or your favorite veggie sticks.
Makes about 2 1⁄2 cups
