It’s that time of year when we’re busy wrapping presents, drinking (dairy-free) eggnog and running from holiday party to holiday party. So many of my clients have been asking me for healthy appetizers or light meals during the hectic holiday season. Well, have no fear, Amie is here. And I’ve got an easy peasy white bean spread recipe just for you today!


Almost all of my clients have a can of beans in their pantry. I’m sure you do, too. Add a bit of sea salt, pepper, lemon juice and olive oil and you’re all set.


That’s it.


I simply toss all of these ingredients into a food processor and poof – a perfectly homemade (and healthy) spread that you can serve for your upcoming holiday party with sliced veggies, gluten-free tortilla chips and rice crackers.

Have some leftover spread? No worries… use a spoonful or two on your gluten-free toast the next morning or serve it as a ‘hummus’ on your lunchtime salad or stuffed into your burrito or fajitas for dinner.


Simple, right?

I told ya so!

Now go open up your pantry and have a mini party in your kitchen.

    Looks like a really nice alternative to hummus! But could any other kind of bean be used and still taste similar? 🙂

  14. I’m just starting this GF journey to try to rid myself of daily migraines and have a healthy life again. I just bookmarked your site – there are so many things I want to try and they look so yummy. thank you!!!

  15. I have made hummus once so far in my new processor and this recipe interests me to use another variety of beans. I hope to one day own the vitamix, it is my dream kitchen appliance at this time. The Delux Kit of Non-Toxic Cleaning Supplies would be great to have in my house because are pets have made it hard to keep the house with all of their fur and such. New cleaning products would probably make my mom happy.

I could really use all of these cleaning items as I want to live cleaner and have been very limited to things more like vinegar and the old chemical cleaners I have not been able to replace yet due to cost rather than a good set of base cleaners to work with. I know there importance and would be very grateful for something to replace those nasty ones that sit in my cleaning tub. Thank you for all that you do to help others live cleaner healthier lives.

  32. This dip/spread sounds great. I am on a dill kick right now. Can’t seem to get enough of it. I wonder what that means, lol.

  33. 5 stars
    Amie, this is a great recipe!!!! I was wondering if I could use dried dill instead of fresh. I don’t always have fresh on hand. Is there any others herbs you would recommend for to use in this recipe? Do you think basil would work okay? I always have that fresh. Thanks for the help!!!! Your recipes are always so yummy!!

    1. Yes of course Maria; I use Simply Organic or Frontier Organic Dried Dill and it’s fabulous. Basil works well, too. Enjoy!
      Happy Holidays!

    Just made this– super quick to put together! I had navy beans instead of cannellini beans, so kept it as a white bean paste. I didn’t have fresh dill or sprouts, which would totally make this spread BUT I did have dried dill and some Bubbies cultured (fermented) dill pickles to add to it so I made it probiotic. Great mild base for making it into any type of flavor! We like spicy so I’m going to add sriracha and pepper almond cheese with my tomato and make it a great sandwich. I’d like to make it with buffalo sauce next. Thank you!
