Tasty Tuesday: Raw Vegan Spinach Dip

Tuesday, November 13th, 2012

I am almost always looking for new ideas of what do with greens…as much as I love green smoothies and kale salads, a little variety is definitely nice when it comes to eating healthy. I am in the home stretch right now of a two week cleanse where I learned some great new recipes and ideas for incorporating greens into our meals. One of my favorite new snacks is this raw, vegan, spinach dip**. It is a super duper quick snack, taking less than 5 minutes to prepare. Basically you throw the following ingredients in a food processor for a few minutes and voila, delicious and nutritious spinach dip!

Ingredients:

3 cups of fresh spinach

1 large avocado, pitted

juice from one lemon

1 clove of garlic

small sliver (approx. 1/8 teaspoon) of fresh peeled ginger*

sprinkle of curry*, cumin*, and salt

dash of cayenne pepper*

* these are intense flavors, especially when used in raw foods…a little goes a long way!

Directions:

Mix all ingredients in food processor until smooth. Serve immediately with raw veggies or flaxseed crackers.

ENJOY!
