I love dips and sauces. But they are usually full of fat and salt and offer very little nutritional value. This dip is delicious and full of fiber from the black beans and healthy fat from the cashews. It’s a real party hit too, since it’s a little bit different than your average dip.
This item is made by sautéing onions and garlic together in savoury red curry paste and combining with fiber-rich black beans and silky cashew cream. The result is a slight spicy, flavour-packed and healthy dip!
I hope you love this vegan curry black bean dip! It’s:
- Slight Spicy
- & Delicious!
This recipe makes for a perfect party dip or appetizer. Guaranteed crowd-pleaser!Print
