My Dilly Dip

Creamy Raw Dilly Dip
I was looking for an easy, healthy, yummy raw dip for spreading on collard wraps or just dipping raw veggies. I threw this one together and it was a hit!! Full of flavor with spices and creamy smooth due to the avocado and tahini. Here is the recipe. Enjoy!

CREAMY RAW DILLY DIP (SPREAD)
1 small avocado
2 T raw tahini
2-3 T fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 T filtered water
1/4 tsp wheat free tamari
1/4 tsp raw honey
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp chili powder
1 tsp chives
1 tsp onion powder or dehydrated onion flakes
1 tsp dill weed (+1 tsp more for garnish)
Place all into the food processor and process till creamy. Allow to chill in refrig for 4 hours. Garnish with more dill weed before serving.
+JMJ+ Today I am grateful for an unexpected act of pure generosity. We had a short somewhere in our phone lines and the phone and Internet were down. A man came into the house and had to rewire the lines. Four of the five kids were having breakfast and our oldest son had the dog locked in the bedroom--he thinks he is a vicious Havanese and barks like a German Shepherd. It would have been quite a big bill. He said to my husband, "You are a family man and I dig that". He did not even charge us! Beautiful act of kindness, we are very grateful.

This would make a wonderful veggie dip for our carrots and celery.

Peace and raw health to you too Elizabeth. This looks delicious. You asked about sea spaghetti. It's also called Espagueti de Mar or Himanthalia Elongata. When it's rehydrated it looks like seaweed-coloured tagliatelle.

OK. I grow some collards and love them. How do you make a collard wrap? That sounds great!

Hey Veggie PAK,
You are so lucky to have collards growing!!
I have not grown them yet, sad but true.
Check out my post on Farmer's Market Collard Wraps http://rawlivingandlearning.blogspot.com/2011/01/farmers-market-collard-wraps.html
I just lay out a collard, cut out the "spine" then spread on any raw dip or thick dressing, top with veggies of choice and of course sprouts, roll it up very tight and enjoy! They are insanely good, our kids even eat them.
Peace & Raw Health,
Elizabeth

Anthony-
Thank you sooo much for the sea spaghetti information. I will have to mail order some, none of our health food stores know what I am talking about!
Peace & Raw Health,
Elizabeth
