Rad Recipes: Mediterranean Inspired Dairy-Free Dip (DF, GF, V, VG)

OMG. The flavors in this gluten free, dairy free dip are outstanding! The combination of sweet red bell pepper and nutty sesame seed from the tahini go great with crunchy crackers and fresh, raw veggie sticks. Consistency is on the thin side, not as thick as hummus or bean dip, so it also works really well as a salad dressing. Mmmmmmmmmm

Here’s the super simple recipe:

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon EVOO
  • 1/3 Cup organic tahini
  • 1 Cup fresh sweet red bell pepper*, seeded and chopped
    • *for a smoother and smokier flavor, try using roasted red peppers from a jar
  • 1 clove fresh minced garlic
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • pinch of red pepper flakes, to taste
  • dash of low-sodium soy sauce or liquid aminos, optional

Combine all of the ingredients in a high speed blender or food processor and whir until smooth, about 2-3 minutes. Chill before serving, at least 30 minutes to thicken. Enjoy!
