Chef Kenzie Creamy Dairy-Free Dill Dip

Chef Kenzie's Favorite Dairy-Free Dill Recipe

Kenzie Osborne
One of my all-time favorite dips is a rich, thick, and creamy dill dip. Most of the time, these dips are prepared with dairy products. Of course, they can also be made for those of us who prefer to steer clear from the dairy isle. After a bit of experimentation (and a generous amount of taste-tests), I think i've found the perfect creamy dairy-free dill dip!

Servings 2.5 cups


  • Food processor or high-power blender


  • 1 (15 ounce) can, about 1 ¾ cups, white beans, drained and rinsed

  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ¾ tsp salt (or more, if desired)

  • Use a food processor, high-power blender, or immersion blender to blend together the white beans, soaked walnuts, garlic, lemon juice, and salt.
  • Once smooth, slowly pour the olive oil into the mix (while continuously blending) in a steady stream.
