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.
