Sunflower Microgreens & White Bean Dip

Sunflower Microgreens & White Bean Dip

Sunflower Microgreens have a unique, nutty flavor and are an increasingly popular ingredient in pesto!

They’re also one of the best plant protein sources. A 3 oz/ 100 gram serving of sunflower microgreens contains 25 grams of plant protein!

Combine that with a can of beans that contains between 6-8 grams of protein, you now have an easy protein rich dip and spread to use in a variety of ways.

They're a great option for people with nut allergies as sunflower microgreens give you that nutty flavor without any nut ingredients!

This versatile dip can be eaten with veggies, as a spread on toast, on pizza, as a dip with chips, or quesadillas. 


You will need:

1 and 1/2 cups sunflower microgreens  

1 - 15oz can drained  & rinsed white beans 

2 garlic cloves, minced   

Zest from 1/2 a lemon

1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

2 tsp salt & 1 tsp cracked black pepper 

1 tsp fresh chopped rosemary 

2 tablespoons  extra virgin olive oil 

 Juice from 1/2 lemon 

1/4 tsp smoked paprika 


Pulse all ingredients together in a food processor until it reaches a smooth consistency. Taste for seasoning and add more salt & pepper, or olive oil if needed!

Serve with crudités & pita bread. Top with a swirl of extra virgin olive oil & a few red pepper flakes.


Did we mention that sunflower microgreens are a high quality protein? They are a complete source of protein, which means they contain all of the necessary amino acids your body needs!
