A small, light green decorative bowl is filled with amber-colored pumpkin-bean dip! It's garnishes with sliced green onion sprinkled over the top. A small plate with saltine crackers and fresh veggies sits behind the bowl of dip. Two small whole, fresh pumpkins, one white, one orange are slightly blurred in the background.


This savory white bean and pumpkin dip has been a seasonal favorite at my house for a couple of years now. It’s one of the dishes we just have to make after the first day of fall arrives. In fact, I think it’s safe to call this flavorful dip a tradition at my house. 


The top of a small bowl filled with amber-colored pumpkin dip is garnished with sliced green onions. A small rectangular white plate sits beside the bowl with saltine crackers and fesh celery and carrot sticks, ready for dipping.


How to make savory white bean and pumpkin dip. 

All you need are a few pantry staples such as canned cannellini beans,  pumpkin puree, dried thyme, dried parsley, garlic, and a couple of splashes of both orange juice and olive oil to make this lovely spread.  This recipe comes together in minutes once you add all of the ingredients into the mixing bowl of a food processor or blender. After a few whirls, this delish white bean and pumpkin dip is ready to serve to your family and friends.

This simple veggie and bean dip is an impressive freshly made treat, and in my opinion, it’s also a really healthy snack.  This creamy dip is packed with protein, fiber, folate, iron, as well as immune-boosting vitamins, and antioxidants that occur naturally in the star ingredients. This white bean and pumpkin dip is also vegetarian, gluten-free, and dairy-free. This a great seasonal recipe to serve if you have family members or guests who are concerned about those things!  

It’s also truly a cinch to make and I feel great about watching my crew gobble it up.
