I really loved this dip. The recipe is loaded with walnuts that contain brain and heart-healthy omega-3s fatty acids. Garlic is considered a sulfur food. Sulfurs are responsible for transporting metals and minerals in the body.
I touched on the subject/importance of sulfur foods on the Join The Conversation Webinar about Hidden Foods and Healthier Choices. Catch the REPLAY here.
- 2 cups Walnuts Soak walnuts for 4-8 hours, drain, and rinse before preparing the dip
- 10 gloves garlic
- 4 tbsp lime juice freshly squeezed
- 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 cup water
- 10 pieces quinoa/chia crackers recipe for crackers is also available
- 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
- 1/8 tsp ground chili pepper
Blend all ingredients together in a Vitamix or blender until it is creamy.
P.S. If you do not add the crackers, decrease the water to 1/2 cup of water and add as much as needed to a creamy texture.
Enjoy the dip with healthy crackers (see the recipe for quinoa chia cracker here) and crunchy vegetables such as celery, cabbage, radish, and cucumbers.
I love to use it as a dressing for my salad as well.
Experiment. Let your creativity take over. Have fun!
