I’m going to share one of the best factor in my fridge proper now. It’s a dip, and I can’t get sufficient of it. If you may think about an up to date model of the virtuous hippie spreads discovered for many years in California grocery co-ops and farmers’ markets — that is what I used to be going for. The base is a trifecta of creamy ripe avocado, nuts (cashews or almonds), and chickpeas. Citrus juice kicks in with acidity from orange and lime. And I raided the spice drawer after that – cayenne, curry powder, and ginger all play for retains right here.
A Versatile Dip (or Spread!)
This is a hardworking dip. It’s nice with baked pita chips, tortilla chips, crackers, and so forth. It may also play a supporting position in lots of different methods. It’s a flexible sandwich unfold. And I like it slathered throughout garlic-rubbed grilled flatbreads. It’s A+ inside burritos, or on high of quesadillas. Make an enormous beneath swoosh within the backside your favourite grain bowl and cargo it up. You may even skinny it out with a splash of olive oil, and additional citrus juice for a creamy dressing.
I like the concept of utilizing toppings to let folks know what they’re consuming. So, for instance, right here you see cashews, chickpeas, and the curry powder. The toppings additionally add diversified texture to the creamy dip. You can use as many or as few as you want, however I do discover the toppings all the time get scooped up first with this one.
Please make this dip, you will not be sorry 😉 It’s simply so good and so versatile. But for those who assume it may not be your factor — different dips / spreads I like embody this vibrant beet caviar, or, after all, nice guacamole. Enjoy! xx, -h
