Bean-Chili-Dip, Baba Ganoush, and Green Hummus

Today I want to share with you three yummy vegan dip ideas

A red and spicy bean and chili dip, a homemade baba ganoush and a green peas hummus

For the bean and chili dip you will need

- red bell pepper (1/2 of a big one)
- kidney beans (a small can)
- fresh chili (two or three - depending on how spicy you like it)
- tomatoe paste (3 tea spoons)
- canned tomatoes (one small can)
- soy sauce (2 tea spoons)
- some garlic

Just put everything in your food processor and mix until you have a nice dip :) 
Add some pepper or/and salt in the end, if you like. 

For the baba ganoush you will need

- two backed egg plants (remove the skin)
- lemon juice (just a little)
- tahina (4-6 tea spoons)
- garlic to your taste
- olive oil
- salt

Please make sure to bake the egg plants in the oven until soft,  before mixing all the ingredients together. And remove the skin of the eggplants to get a nice and smooth dip. 

For the peas hummus you will need

- peas (canned or fresh or frozen)
- garlic to your taste
- salt
- lemon juice
- parsley
- tahina (3-4 tea spoons)
- cumin
- cayenne pepper
- olive oil 

In case you use canned peas, just mix everything together in the food processor. If you use fresh or frozen peas make sure to cook them until they are really soft before mixing everything together. 

Bannock bread goes perfectly with these dips:

Just take some flour of your choice, add water and baking powder and blend it all together. Put some vegetable oil into a pan and fry the dough for a few minutes from each side in the pan (like pancakes). These little breads are soooo yummy! You can add salt or rosemary on top of the bread if you like. 

Enjoy and let me know you liked it, in case you tried :)

Lots of love and have a wonderful rest of the week!
