Kidney Spread/Dip

What you need: 

1 can of kidney beans( drained)
2 tablespoons of nayonnaise (you may a use good quality vegan substitute)
one tablespoon of dill

What you do: 

This is a very simple recipe. Take a can of kidney beans and drain the kidney beans (remove all of the liquid in the can). Put the drained kidney beans into a bowl, and add 2 tablespoons of vegan mayonnaise. Blend together until creamy.
At this point you have choices; you can make a dip or sandwich spread.
For the spread use a tablespoon of dill. Blend the dill into the mixture, make sure the mixture is not too moist for a sandwich spread. If you want to add more liquid use sweet pickle juice. That is all there is to it .
If you want a dip, add more pickle juice. An alternative for a dip would be to add one or two tablespoons of dijon mustard instead of the dill or pickle juice (might not be good as a sandwich spread but great for a dip!).
Kidney beans have as wonderful sweetness to them that blends so well with many herbs and spices.

i added some soy sauce, lemon juice and vegan red wine vinegar. my parents loved it!!!!


I made this the other day, and while I thought it was good, I also thought that maybe it was missing a little bit of something?  But I would still maybe make it again, and experiment with adding other things, like lemon juice, or salt, or something.


I have to admit I was skeptical, but this actually tastes really good.  I don't even like kidney beans that much (I just had some in the cupboard that I needed to use).  It's oddly sweet, which I never in a million years would've expected from a kidney bean recipe with just 3 ingredients.
