“Cheezy” Almond Dip

I have found that people (including children) are glad to eat healthy as long as what they are eating is delicious.  Here’s a recipe for a yummy dip that is always a hit!  It is packed with nutrients (calcium, antioxidants, protein, B-12, and more) and tastes amazing!  Be careful, it can be addicting!

Almond Vegetable Dip
(tastes cheesy)

1 C raw almonds

2/3 C pure water

1/2 t nama shoyu (or tamari or soy sauce)

1 T fresh lemon juice

1 or 2 garlic cloves

1/2 C diced red bell pepper

1/4 C nutritional yeast

Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Store in a glass container in the refrigerator.

Delicious as a dip for raw vegetables or as a spread on sandwiches, pitas, wraps, etc.  Kids LOVE this!!!

    Does it really taste cheesy, even though there isn’t any cheese?

    Yes, it tastes a lot like Pimento Cheese. Nutritional yeast gives recipes a cheesy flavor. Great question! Thanks for posting!
