Whenever I make this dip for family or friends it’s a big hit and everyone is always surprised to learn that the ingredients are actually healthy! Store-bought dips are usually littered with nasties like trans fats, sugar, preservatives, flavours and colouring. Making your own is ridiculously easy – throw all the ingredients in a food processor and it’s done! This dip is packed with protein, vitamin C, antioxidants, healthy fats and immune boosting nutrients.

Pinch of sea salt and pepper
Optional: fresh herbs for serving
- Add all ingredients to a food processor and mix until smooth.
- Scoop into a serving bowl and sprinkle with fresh herbs.
- Serve with vegetable sticks, organic corn chips or spread it out to form a bed for meat, chicken or fish dishes.
