Healthy Smashed Bean & Pea Dip Thermomix

Published , Last Updated

Smashed Bean and Pea Dip is the perfect choice when you want a creamy, moreish dip which is also healthy and delicious! The feta gives the dip zing, whilst the seeds add crunch.

Sometimes I see a recipe that I want to make straight away. Other recipes I seem to skim over or miss entirely. I’ve had the recipe for this healthy Smashed Bean & Pea Dip for twelve months now but I haven’t been inspired to make it. I’m sure you’re wondering what changed. Well, I went to a Thermomix cooking class and the dip was served at this get-together.

This dip has everything I like in a snack. I’m sure you already know how much I lOVE healthy dips, my favourites are the Baba Ganoush and Hommus, which are both so healthy. This recipe is the same, healthy and tasty, low in saturated fat and high in fibre!

I’m sure I’ve told you how much I love to eat a high-fibre diet, but in case you missed it.

Why Fibre is GOOD!

Fibre is the magic ingredient that keeps you feeling satisfied longer. There is also a lot of research on gut bacteria which suggests a diet high in fibre feeds the good bacteria. This is the particular type of gut bacteria which likes to keep you thin. I could go on forever about this topic but if you’re interested, take a look at what I’ve written about fibre in my apple pie chia pudding recipe. The chia pudding also makes a delicious breakfast recipe.

Smashed Bean & Pea Dip Substitute Ingredients

The recipe for my dip includes peas, beans and edamame. All of these ingredients are found in the freezer section of the supermarket. In my store, the ingredients were side by side. If you have trouble finding either ingredient it’s easy to make substitutes.

  • No Edamame -use the same amount of peas and make up the difference with broad beans.
  • No Broad Beans – use the same amount of peas and make up the difference with edamame.
  • Don’t like mint – Substitute the mint for 5gm Dill or Basil
  • Can’t find the pepita, sunflower seed and pine nut mix – Substitute for any nuts or seeds you like.

Serving Ideas

As you can see by my pictures, I like to add a topping to the dip so guests can load up crackers with extra feta, seeds and whole beans.

For a fancier vegetarian finger food, you could grill bruschetta and add a spoonful of the smashed Bean dip and top with micro herbs or watercress.

The leftover dip is fabulous as a spread on sandwiches.

I made these as part of a live Facebook broadcast so if you would like to see a replay of the Bean & Pea Smashed Dip Video just follow the link. If you’re not a member of the ThermoKitchen Facebook group page you may need to join first.

Dip Watchpoint!

Although the dip is quick to make, a little bit of pre-thought is needed for the recipe.

The frozen vegetables need to be steamed so time must be allotted to cook the beans. The dip is served cold. So once the recipe is complete time needs to be allowed for the dip to chill completely before serving.

Having said that it’s such a quick recipe I’m sure you will be making it again and again.

As I said in the broadcast, the original recipe was adapted from the Thermomix Festive Cookbook. Today I’m sharing my version of the dip. I think my recipe is even nicer as it has some crunch and a little more lemon and feta. Funnily enough, I noticed the recipe has also appeared in another, non-thermal magazine! It’s obviously a popular dip!
