Looking for something fresh and bright to liven up your crudités? Look no further! 


  • 1 15-oz can unsalted black beans, drained/rinsed 
  • 1 cooked red beet, peeled/diced (about ½ – ¾ cup) 
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped 
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar 
  • 1 tsp white miso 
  • 1 tsp ground cumin 
  • Pinch of dried thyme 
  • ½ tsp pepper 
  • ¼ cup chopped herbs (parsley, basil, dill, cilantro)

Blend all ingredients – minus the salt, EVOO and 1 tsp of the fresh herbs – in a food processor until smooth. As everything is blending, slowly pour in the EVOO. Scrape down the processor sides and blend again.  

Add salt to taste. Garnish with the remaining 1 tsp fresh herbs and serve chilled or at room temperature.
