Ingredients

For the sun-dried tomato dip:

1/4 cup pine nuts
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, soaked in 1/2 cup water for 20 minutes
6-8 tablespoons reserved sun-dried tomato water
1/2 cup red kidney beans
1/2 teaspoon Herbamare
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
Pinch dried basil

For the chili-walnut dip:

2 tablespoons Braggs liquid aminos
1 cup kidney beans
1/2 cup walnuts, raw
1/2 teaspoon chili pepper
2-4 tablespoons water

Additional dip ingredients:

2 handfuls of spinach, chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat. Spread pine nuts evenly across sheet and bake for 9-10 minutes or until golden. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before using.
  2. Melt coconut oil in small frying pan on medium-high heat. Add garlic and onion and sauté until translucent. Drop into blender.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients for the sun-dried tomato dip into the blender and blend until smooth. You may have to add an additional 2 tablespoons of the sun-dried tomato water, depending on its thickness. I used 8 tablespoons. Once mixture is smooth, set aside.
  4. To make the chili walnut dip, process all its ingredients in a food processor until smooth.
  5. In a glass bowl, layer half of the sun-dried tomato dip, followed with all of the chili dip, then spinach, and lastly another layer of sun-dried tomato.
  6. Serve with chips, crackers, or veggies.
