HEALTHY SUPERBOWL PARTY DIP

Looking for a party dip that is healthy while still being delicious? This Spicy Hummus Dip is perfect for everyone!
Football has been on the TV all day long with NFL playoffs in my house and everyone is excited about the upcoming Superbowl game–it’s always so fun to get together with good friends, good snacks, and a big game to celebrate.  I love hosting and trying out new recipes for my friends so I wanted to share my latest spicy hummus-esque dip that has the perfect kick of cayenne pepper!  It’s vegan too and is loved by all (including meat-lovers!).  I headed to my local Safeway this past week to pick up all of my ingredients (including these gorgeous roses!)  Check out the list below of the ingredients you’ll need:

Ingredients for Spicy Hummus Dip:

  • 4-5 cloves garlic (depending on your preference)
  • 2 cups edamame (I used frozen and shelled for ease)
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • 3-4 tablespoons of Hellman’s Vegan Carefully Crafted Dressing and Sandwich Spread (so good and an easy vegan swap for regular mayo!)
  • Juice of one lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne (I sprinkled more on top because I love the heat!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • Vegetables or pita chips to scoop your dip

Start out by microwaving the garlic until tender–I popped it in for about 30 seconds to warm it up.  Add your cloves to the food processor (no need to mince it before hand!)

And the next step is the easiest one of all!  Start adding your ingredients to the food processor–garlic, edamame, cilantro, Hellman’s vegan spread, salt, spices, and lime juice!

When I was making this dip this weekend, I was really impressed with what a great substitute this Hellman’s vegan spread is for traditional mayo.  Even some of the guys over for the game were surprised that it wasn’t regular ol’ mayo.  Love that Hellman’s has this vegan option now!

Blend all ingredients together in the food processor until smooth.  I would stop from time to time to scrape down the sides of the bowl to make sure it was all incorporated.  Depending on the power of your food processor, this may take a few minutes to get the consistency you like.

    I love edamame and this sounds amazing! I didn’t know that Hellman’s made a vegan mayo! I am vegan so I will have to check it out!

    That sounds like a great dip. I had no idea Hellmann’s made a vegan mayonnaise. I guess the vegan lifestyle is finally getting some love.

    I love dips like this. I have a friend who’s gone vegan, so I’m glad I’ll finally be able to make something that she’ll eat!

    This sounds yummy. I haven’t heard of the vegan sandwich spread from Hellman’s but it sounds perfect for vegans. What an easy healthy swap.

    I love that you use a strong presence of garlic! I love heavily garlic flavored dips!

    This looks and sounds yummy! I have been looking for a healthy recipe for super bowl, thank you!

    Oh this would be an awesome dip to make. I’m definitely interested in testing out the vegan spread for the first time.

    That sounds awesome, especially with a little kick of flavor in it. Tailgating food doesn’t have to be horrible for you.

    I didn’t realize Hellman’s made a Vegan Mayo. We’re having people over for the big game, one of whom is a Vegan, and I’m sure she’d appreciate having a dip she can enjoy too! Thanks for sharing 🙂
