I love raw dips! They’re one my favorite thing to play with in the kitchen due to the endless combination and creative variations you can make, and it’s even more endless what you can combine with them – veggies, raw crackers, raw breads. I really like to make this cilantro lime dip and use it to make stuffed red pepper – an easy to make and living food dinner idea (in case you’ve been running out of ideas.) I just made this cilantro lime dip with beet and turnip chips and it’s absolutely delicious…
Tahini. Dear, sweet, slightly bitter but oh-so-delectable, nutrient-rich and totally unique, tahini from the heavens. I heart thee!
Tahini has filled the void where ranch once resided. Tahini, with its tang and bite, with its high protein and exceptional calcium count, with the sort of ubiquitous zest that will accompany any flavor profile. Tahini is like the “jeans” of the food world!
And this dip, just a little bit different every time I make it (which is why it’s so dang wonderful), is the “perfect pair”. It goes. with. everything.
I slather it on raw crackers. I use it as a salad dressing. I pour it over roasted root veggies and baked potatoes. It’s a great for dunking sandwiches and it’s equally divine as a mayo replacer/bread spread. And of course, it’s my ultimate, go-to raw veggie dip.
The following recipe is written in approximations, because that’s how I roll with it. That’s why it’s fun! You can work with what you have on hand and you can adjust to suit your tastes. Get creative with it and play around!
