Red kidney bean dip

Yummy recipe for you – enjoy as a side dish or a snack. 

Buy your beans & legumes in a bulk shop (if available) or in the biggest possible packaging in order to reduce your waste. I always cook my beans/chickpeas in advance and I store them portioned in the freezer.


What you need:

  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 cups (around 250g) cooked red kidney beans* or 1 can (see notes below)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoon nutritional yeast (see pictures below how it looks like)
  • 2 tablespoon lemon, squeezed (or more)


How to make it:

  1. Heat up the oil in the pan, add onion and cook till tender, add garlic and cook for another 30 seconds.
  2. Meanwhile put into the food processor cooked kidney beans, nutritional yeast, lemon, salt, pepper.
  3. When your onion/garlic mixture is done, add it to the food processor as well.
  4. Mix it till smooth.
  5. Taste it and add more seasoning, lemon or nutritional yeast if you desire.


Stores it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving.


This recipe make 3-4 servings. You can share it with your loved ones or store it in the fridge in an airtide container.

*Red kidney beans notes – I usually buy all my beans dry and I cook them ahead and store them portioned in my freezer. This way they are handy whenever I need them. If you don’t have time for cooking them, just use red kidney beans in the can.

I like to eat my hummus with no oil baked potatoes or with any raw veggies (e.g. cucumber, carrot)
