Like all of you I’m a bit bored at times spending too much time at home and to get through this we all get the munchies, so why not snack on something healthy. Dips are one of my favorite snack foods and they are crowd pleasing at any party. My chipotle almond dip is a creamy, healthy dairy free option and is so versatile you can use it as a sandwich spread or for wraps. So when you are watching your marathon shows on t.v. try this recipe out or when we get the chance to party again try serving this instead of hummus or ranch with your veggies for a surprising and tasteful change.
Chipotle Almond Dip
This creamy & healthy dip has a nutty and cheesy flavor and tastes so good that you'll forget that it's vegan
- 1 1/2 cup roasted unsalted almonds
- 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/4 cup sunflower oil
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 4 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 2 tbsp Bragg liquid aminos
- 1 tsp chopped garlic
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
- 3 tbsp chipotle chili in adobo
Place the almonds in a bowl and cover with water, cover and place in the refrigerator overnight, this softens them so they blend nice and creamy
Drain the almonds and add to a food processor along with the other ingredients and process until smooth, stopping to scrape sides of bowl as needed and to adjust salt and or almond milk if it's too thick for your liking.
Let chill for two hours before serving. Serve with tortilla chips, crackers and/or veggies
Makes 2 cups
I love learning about the ingredients I use in cooking and I found some great info over at Popsugar You Will Never Look at jalapenos the Same Way After Learning This Fact, did you know that jalapenos and chipotle are the same pepper?
