I love surprising and introducing new flavours when friends come over, These 4 Dips or Spreads go really well with chopped vegetables and/or whole grain crackers or toast.

MIDDLE EASTERN ZATAAR

  • Mix 1/3 Cup Virgin Olive Oil with dried Thyme, Oregano, Sesame Seeds, Sumac and Sea Salt

RED OLIVE SPREAD

  • Blend 1/2 Cup pitted olives, 1 clove of Garlic, 1/3 Cup of Sunflower Seeds

RAW PESTO

  • Process 1 Cup Basil, 1/2 Cup Spinach, 1 clove of Garlic, 1/3 Cup Pine Nuts (Cashews or Macadamia Nuts are just as creamy!), Sea Salt, 1/3 Cup Virgin Olive Oil

COOKED HUMMUS

  • Blend 1 Cup cooked chickpeas, 1 clove of Garlic, 2 Tbsp of Tahini, Sea Salt, and I always like a pinch of either Paprika or Cayenne Pepper.
