Hidden Veggie Cheese Dip Recipe


  • 1/4 cup steamed carrot, chopped
  • 1/4 cup steamed cauliflower, chopped
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • HIPPEAS chickpea puffs for dipping


  1. Start by steaming the carrots and cauliflower until they are tender. This can be done on the stovetop or in a microwave-safe dish with a bit of water. I like using the frozen microwave to steam veggies!
  2. In a blender, combine the steamed carrots, steamed cauliflower, milk, shredded cheddar cheese, and garlic powder.
  3. Blend the ingredients until you achieve a smooth and creamy consistency. If the mixture is too thick, you can add a little more milk to reach your desired texture.
  4. Once blended, transfer the Hidden Veggie Cheese Dip to a serving bowl.
  5. Serve the dip alongside HIPPEAS chickpea puffs.

Storage Tips:

If you have any leftover Hidden Veggie Cheese Dip, store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. Remember to give it a good stir before serving, as the consistency may thicken in the fridge.
