Tasty Dip

I’ve been trying to find foods our daughter will eat which is sometimes challenging. She’s a picky eater and doesn’t eat any vegetables …. ohhhhhhhhhhhhh man.

I am across this dip back in January from the Daily Garnish and thought I would try it out. Well, it’s taken me weeks to finally get the items for the recipe, and list isn’t long … crazy eh! Grocery shopping with a toddler isn’t always fun so I’ve been doing small runs here and there after work or on my lunch break. Today, I took Lilly grocery shopping and it wasn’t bad because it wasn’t busy and we were in and out in no time. Not to mention she always makes a few new friends while out and about.

“Cheesy” Black Bean Dip from Daily Garnish:

  • 1 can tri-bean blend (kidney, pinto, black)   * I made the mistake of getting chic peas, kidney etc – I’ll stick to her recommendation of kidney, pinto and black beans next time.)
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt   *I used sea salt as that’s all I have.
  • tortilla chips
  • I also added 1 teaspoon of ground flax-seed – I had this to everything.










1. Rinse and drain beans.

2. Put all ingredients in food processor and blend until smooth!!!!!!!

3. All done – eat with tortilla chips.







Yum Yum!











My only food critic at the moment is Lilly. She tried it and came back for more!!! Success … at least for today! This was such an easy dip to make, so tasty and VEGAN!!!  I know my husband is going to love it.











This is tasty Mom!

  1. One trick that sometimes works for us is to pretend that certain dishes are *just* for mommy and daddy, and we’re doing them a huge favor by letting them try it. If I can get them to ask for it, I can usually count on them liking it.

  2. That sounds great! Definitely going to try it! We have been making cauliflower popcorn at our house: cauliflower tossed with a little olive oil and some seasonings and then baked. My three year old and almost two year old love it!

    Thanks for the great recipe idea!
