White Bean & Dill Dip Recipe

This is one of the easiest dips I have ever made. It doesn’t require many ingredients and takes very little time.

The idea for this dip came to me when I was standing in front of the dill at the grocery store.  I was thinking to myself, “I love dill but never  manage to use it all up before it goes bad”,  which is why I don’t buy it that often.  Then I thought, why not make a dip using a whack load of dill.  A real blast of dillicious flavour. Get it?  Cheesy, I know. Continue reading

Avocado, Parsley, Roasted Pine Nut Dip

Guacamole meets pesto in this dip. If you like either guacamole or pesto you will love this dip. If you don’t like guacamole or pesto, hopefully you will still love this dip.

The creaminess of the avocados, with the roasted taste of the pine nuts, and freshness of the parsley come together nicely and are given a helping hand from a little lemon, garlic and olive oil.

Great to snack on while while barbecuing on a summer’s day.


Avocado, Parsley, Pine Nut Dip

2 avocados
2 cups flat leaf parsley
1/2 cup roasted pine nuts
juice of 1 lemon
zest of 1/2 a lemon
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Optional: top with some thinly sliced portobello mushrooms sautéed with olive oil, salt and pepper

Combine all the ingredients together in a food processor and process until smooth.

Smoky Black Bean Dip

Everytime I make this black bean dip for people I have people asking me for the recipe.  Until now, the recipe has lived in my head. So for all of you that asked me for this black bean dip recipe, here it is. Finally.

For those of you that have never tried it, I suggest you give it a try. It is pretty well received by everybody.  I think it has to do with the smoky spicy chipotle flavor. At least I think that’s why I like it so much.
