5-minute Black Bean Dip- super easy using only your blender (no cooking required), and it's also vegan and oil-free. Use it as a dip, or as a spread for quesadillas. Yum!


  • 1/2 cup raw cashews - Soak cashews in water overnight and drain, for a creamier dip. If using a Vitamix or high powered blender, no need to soak.
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Spanish paprika
  • 1-2 tablespoons hot sauce of choice - I like jalapeño
  • 1 15 ounce can black beans - rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup water


  • To make this dip, first you'll want to access if you need to soak your cashews in water or not.
  • If NOT soaking the cashews (only if using a high-powered blender), add the DRY cashews to the blender with the nutritional yeast and blend until it resembles a powder, 10 seconds or so. Then add all remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.
  • If you need to soak the cashews overnight (if not using a high-powered blender), drain cashews before adding to the blender. Then add all remaining ingredients on blend until smooth.
  • You may need to add a little extra water and stir to get it to combine evenly, but a 1/2 cup water works perfectly for me.
  • Serve this dip with chips, or as a quesadilla base for cheese. This recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups, or 6 servings. It will last about a week in the fridge, in an airtight container.
