High Protein Black Bean Lime Dip (10 Minutes, Vegan)

High Protein Black Bean Lime Dip #vegan #dip #black beans | hurrythefoodup.com

This Black Bean Dip is our revolutionary new snack!

It was originally created as a filling for a much larger meal but it tastes so good and brings so many health benefits we decided that it deserved it’s very own page and recipe.

We know that good, healthy food can most definitely taste as delicious as or (much!) better than all the unhealthy crap lining the shelves around us. The proof is in the pudding (or dip), as they say.

And indeed it is. This high protein dip is awesome enough to replace regular high calorie/high fat dips for whichever occasion they’re needed, whether it’s at a party or just for munching at home. In fact, and in my humble opinion, it tastes so simplistically natural it’s worth just spreading on toast as a post-workout snack! The dark, almost nutty black beans are offset by the citrusy lime, and the ginger gives an unexpected, but very welcome kick.

But don’t take our word for it – try it and see for yourself!

If you’ve been following our blog with any regularity then you’ll know we’re in the middle of a Body Transformation Challenge (you haven’t?? Shame on you!) and we’ve been testing and reviewing new fitness apps and regimes such as Freeletics (spoiler: it’s great!)

Anyhoo, a key component of getting fitter and stronger has always been, and will probably always be a good intake of quality protein. Sure you can shovel down mouthful after mouthful of expensive protein powder, but there have got to be better ways, haven’t there?

Health Benefits – High Protein Black Bean Lime Dip

Once again, beans are the focus of the week. Of all foods they have the very best ratio of protein-fiber value, so you know you’re taking care of muscle fatigue, regeneration and stimulating new growth. The protein-fiber level is also great for blood-sugar levels, and current research is being undertaken to see how black beans can help with type 2 diabetes (1).

Need more? The high level of magnesium in black beans is just fantastic – magnesium is critical for so many different areas of our bodies – including bone integrity, energy production and nervous system balance (2). ‘nuff said really.

  1. This sounds awesome! I’m a sucker for a good dip and love black beans ones – will have to give this a try! And I bet any leftovers would make a killer sandwich spread!

  2. Your recipe looks easy to make and very healthy. Will definitely make it soon… thanks for sharing

  3. Yummy!!! The perfect party dip! Lime pretty much makes everything better…what a perfect combo!

    • We usually have fresh limes in the house and they really make such a positive difference to many dishes and drinks 🙂 just like you said Jenn!

  4. We just had black beans last night – with garlic and onions – gah – I wish I had seen this recipe and made dip instead! Such an easy and quick recipe! T

  5. Someone pass the nachos! This looks so good!

  6. Is it one can of black and one can of kidney beans? Or choose one of them? I love this idea for a dip – anything with lime juice added is always soo much tastier. Gonna try and make it this weekend!

  7. Mmm, this looks so good! I love black beans, and I had no idea they were good for blood sugar levels! I’m definitely going to use them in my recipes more often. I’ll have to try this too. Love the addition of ginger!

  8. Black bean dip is a favourite in our house- I will give this one a try, it looks great. I love the name of your site, very clever!

  9. Tried this Black Bean Dip today. Liked it, but found the lime a bit overpowering. Will try it again with only half a lime. Just one question, how much is a “tin” of black beans? I’ve seen them in different sizes. My thought is that I used to small a size. How much is a “tin” or corn (used in the summer salad from last week)?

    • Hi Mark! Glad you enjoyed the dip. I’m a bit of a citrus fiend so you should definitely adjust the recipe to your tastes. I’ve just checked and my standard black bean tin is 400 grams and looks like a ‘regular’ can. That weight also includes the juice inside; it doesn’t detail a ‘dry’ weight. The corn from last week is a 330 gram tin, or 285 grams ‘dry’. Hope that helps! 🙂

    • Hey Mark!
      Thanks a lot for the feedback, just updated the recipes. We’ll make it clearer in the future 🙂

  10. This dip looks delicious and nutritious. A win win! Back beans and lime sounds great together!

  11. Garlic + Beans – you won’t be able to STOP ME from eating this!!!

  12. Looks nice and new ! Perfect for summers .

  13. I tried this yesterday, it was excellent! Perfect for a sunny day. Thanks for the recipe!

  14. AMAZING sounding dip! Thanks for sharing this!!!! <3 FIVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE STARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

  15. Looks and sounds great! Yummy! I gotta try this one, too! 🙂

  16. This looks like a great recipe. I’m just wondering when to add the ginger as there’s no mention of that in the directions.

  17. I am so excited I found your site. These recipes look amazing. I am just starting the vegetarian life not by choice but by doctor’s orders it’s a little overwhelming, but your site may make it easier thank you!

    • Hi Amber!! Awesome stuff, I’m glad our blog is of help! Really makes us proud, because that’s why we started this beast 😀
      On another note, I really hope you’ll get better! If you achieve it on a veggie diet even better.
      If you like, check out this blog post for loads of helpful links around the vegetarian diet (nutrition, fitness, recipe blogs, eating out). We also have a veggie support group on facebook you’re welcome to join 🙂

    • Thanks Amber, great to have you with us 🙂

  18. I do a bunch of meal prep so I make everything on Sundays for about a week . . . do you think that this dip would stay good in the fridge, or even frozen, for 4 days?

    • Hi Amanda! I don’t see any ingredients in it you need to worry about. This should deffo last 4 days in the fridge. I’ve never put the dip in the freezer, so I can’t really tell how the consistency will be after you defreeze it.

  19. Just made this. Tastes great as a nacho topping!
