If your goal is to eat more veggies, I really think there's no easier (or delicious!) way than having a really good dip stashed in your fridge. When that dip is ready and waiting for you in the fridge, you'll be way more likely to also pull out the carrot and celery sticks, or cut up some radishes for dunking.

Take a few minutes to whip up one of these 10 flavor-packed dips and you won't regret it.

1. How To Make Classic Green Goddess Dressing

While traditional green goddess dressing uses mayo as a thickener, this version lightens things up with tangy Greek yogurt.

2. Creamy Avocado Dip

Blend a ripe avocado with tangy goat cheese and a generous squeeze of lemon, and result is one of the creamiest, dreamiest dips around.

3. Vegan White Bean Artichoke Dip

This protein-rich dip gets even better with time, so, if you think about it, whip it together a day in advance.

4. How To Make Hummus from Scratch

Go ahead and play around with the proportions of this recipe to make it just the way you like it. For an even smoother hummus, we upped the processing time and thinned the dip just a touch with a splash of aquafaba (canned chickpea liquid).

5. Fresh Veggies with 3-Ingredient Cumin-Lime Yogurt Dip

This minimalist yogurt dip is finished with a squeeze of fresh, tangy lime juice, and we think that little touch should extend to your veggies too: Just before serving, treat your veggies to a squeeze of fresh lime juice for an unexpected zing.

6. Minty Sweet Pea and Mascarpone Dip

Use a bag of frozen peas to make this pretty, spring-inspired dip all year round.

7. 3-Ingredient Green Tahini Sauce

In addition to being drizzled over grain bowls and salad, this fresh multi-purpose sauce makes the most wonderful dip. It works with just about any type of herbs you have handy.

9. Smoky Beet Hummus

This dish keeps the basic building blocks of hummus — chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, and lemon — and adds sweet roasted beets and smoky paprika. And it's just as delicious as it is stunning.

10. 3-Ingredient Roasted Lemon Sauce

When partnered with roasted garlic and a few glugs of olive oil, roasted lemons are transformed into a rich, sweet dip with a faint bitter edge.
