Green Dip / Spread
Where I started with this recipe and where I ended up truly surprised me but in a very good way!
I love surprises especially when they taste good! 🙂
That is what is fun or cool when you are using fresh, real ingredients – don’t be afraid to explore or if it’s not as tasty to your liking add a little something here or there or a little more.
And Green – kind of bright but oh so healthy and tasty making healthy eating or eating healthy easy!!
This is a Vegan, Gluten free and basically Raw recipe (Nutritional yeast may not be considered ‘raw’)
What I found with this is I used it as a dip and as a filling – both worked well
– 1 cup Cashews – soaked for about an hour or longer (this helps to softens them, if you don’t have the time for this it’s not totally necessary)
– 1 clove Garlic
– juice of 1 Lemon
– Salt to taste
– 1 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
– 1/2 – 3/4 cup Water (less for a thicker dip or more water for more of a sauce type)
– 1 tsp Greens (Purium’s Power of 10 Veggie) – this is optional, it tastes good without it but this does add flavor and tons of nutrition easily
Put all ingredients into a Vitamix or blender and blend until smooth
Add in Spinach – for this recipe I added in a small container full of Spinach – you can leave some till the end and finely chop the spinach for a more textured dip.
Add in Dill – I used approximately 3 tbsp of fresh dill.
Blend until smooth or desired consistency is achieved.
Once I got the consistency I wanted I added in a small (my hands are small :)) handful of Cashews and lightly blended giving the dip some texture but this is not necessary.
If you want to have more dill flavor or just some herb showing, finely chop Dill and stir in at the last moment.
You can use it as a dip for lots of veggies or crackers.
Great for stuffing Mushrooms, celery or anything else!!
Would love your feedback and please feel free to share this – it is greatly appreciated!!!
Have a fantastic day!!
