I have finally decided to post the dips I made for a birthday party this winter. I am posting the photo of the table & have decided to make it my new series of 100% natural party recipes as an incentive or I’ll procrastinate forever 🙂
The dips take a second, they are really easy to do. I don’t have too much patience for long & complicated… (I used too but not anymore) so, don’t panic… the idea that it’s homemade therefore complicated is just a myth, time have changed & people are adapting to the fast-paced life we have been pushed in.
I’ll start with the dark-orange-tomato-dip and go clockwise to the olive-dip,the ketchup-mayonnaise & finally the Guacamole-dip recipe.
Tomato dip recipe
1. 3 fresh tomatoes (preferably organic)
2. 3 tbsp. oil (I put olive, it was undetectable)
3. 2 cloves garlic
4. 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
5. 1 tsp salt (taste & add according to taste)
6. 1/4 tsp. black pepper (again add if needed)
7. 1 heaped tbsp. tomato puree
Mix in blender (I use a small hand one) add pili-pili if you like it sharp. I took my family to keep on tasting as I don’t include it in my food plan & added if they thought some ingredients were lacking (mainly salt & pepper)
Olive dip recipe
1. 1 tin of pitted green olives (around 400 to 500 gr. = 14 to 17 oz.)
2. 4 heaped tbsp. mayonnaise (try the natural organic if possible)
Mix in blender & enjoy!
Ketchup dip recipe
1. 50% mayonnaise (natural)
2. 50% ketchup
3. Scotch whisky (according to taste)
Mix by hand and taste. This is a very popular “trick” so you probably know it 😉
Guacamole dip recipe
1. 1-2 ripe avocado (depending on the quantity you need)
2. lemon juice (start with half a lemon & add to taste)
3. Salt & black pepper (to taste)
Mix in blender. Leave in pits when refrigerated so the paste doesn’t darken. That’s how easy it gets and let the compliments pour in 🙂
That tables looks so good, full of yummy nibbles 🙂 I think I’ll be trying your olive dip recipe!
Yes! That’s the easier one and my favorite 🙂 the strawberries dipped in chocolate I have already put in the recipe category a while back, it’s fast, easy, colorful & very decorative on a table.
Let me know how it went for you 🙂 I did your coconut brittle recipe which came out very well! Will post it eventually & put your site in if you don’t mind.
Great, glad to hear it 🙂 I must try find a decent vegan mayonnaise for the olive recipe first & will let you know how I get on with it 🙂
