I’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 bean dip 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) dip that you can serve for your upcoming holiday party with sliced veggies, gluten-free tortilla chips and rice crackers.

Have some leftover dip? 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.

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo

  7. 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.

  8. Looks easy and so much cheaper than store bought. The Deluxe Kit of Non -Toxic Cleaning supplies is full of wonderful products to keep the home clean and save the earth. Great Give a way!

  9. I would love to win the Non-Toxic Cleaning supplies kit! I need to do a ton of winter cleaning in my home and this would help me get my home in shape for the holidays and the winter months ahead!!!!!!

  10. I am hoping to win a Housewarming Delux Kit of Non-Toxic Cleaning Supplies from ‘Better Life’. I have used Shaklee cleaning products since my daughter was born, but I am always looking for new options that are naturally scented.

  11. I’d love to win the Housewarming Deluxe Kit of Non-Toxic Cleaning Supplies from ‘Better Life’. I’ve been trying out different brands of cleaning products hoping to find “the one”!

  15. What an amazing giveaway to promote clean living not just clean eating. It is so important to realize how much our environment affects our lives. 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.

  19. Great giveaway as always. I have shared with my Daughter, I will be following your recipes more often due to my illness. Thank you for sharing your information and Knowledge I am thankful.

  20. Almond Butter, please!! We are always looking for healthy almond butter. My daughter cannot eat peanut butter, but she can have almond butter, so that would be awesome!!!

  21. 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.

  22. 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!!

  23. 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!
