Dip. is. delicious.
My love for dip runs deep. What’s not to like? It’s flavorful, versatile and fun to eat. It can be sweet or savory, hot or cold, and a party can’t start without it. My friends and I take our dipping very seriously and have created a ritual gathering dubbed “The Dip Train.” 1) Everyone brings a dip 2) The host provides the dippers and 3) Obviously you line up all the dishes like a train and make train sounds
While these Dip Trains are awesome, getting everyone together is like herding cats. We’re all busy and spread across the country now which makes a Dip Train extra special when it all comes together. However, I need dip more than once a year.
Which is why I make this flax-y, pumkin-y, nut buttery single serving dip.
I just recently started using flaxseed meal. It’s interesting and I like the nuttiness. When you mix it with water it creates a sort of gel.
I add about 3-4 Tablespoons of water to a heaping tablespoon of flaxseed meal and let it sit for 5 minutes.
Whisk it really well and the flax mixture will froth slightly. Then I add 2-3 tablespoons of pumpkin.
I added two Tablespoons of tahini to this recipe but I’ve also made it with coconut butter and several different nut butters and it’s always good 🙂 Use what you like
After adding the tahini you need to really whip it. It gets nice and fluffy and you get a bonus workout.
How great is this monkey bowl?
Serve with something that scoops up dip well. I like it with carrots and celery but it would be great with fruit as well.
