Vegan Dip and Veggie Platter

Vegan Dip and Veggie Platter.  There are so many occasions that I just want a snack, not a whole meal.  I want that snack to be delicious, nutritious, and even healthy.  This platter features four vegan dips, Toasted Pumpkin Seed Dip, Jalapeno Guacamole, Black Bean Dip and Basil Hummus.  I added fresh veggies and fruits and the best gluten free crackers that I have found to round out the platter.  If served as a meal, it contains all of the protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals that you need and it takes only 30 minutes to prepare all of the dips and cut the veggies.  Then, it is time to snack away!  Vegan, gluten free, dairy free.

  • 1 tsp lemon zest from rind
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • Black Bean Dip
  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • juice of 1 lime

  • Jalapeno Guacomole
  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp sweet jalapeno peppers (jarred or canned)
  • pinch red pepper flakes sprinkled on top
  • You can serve with whatever fruits and vegetables that you like. I used:

  • Crackers: Three Seed Gluten Free Sweet Potato Crackers, Three Seed Gluten Free Beet Crackers from Trader Joe's.
