  • Veggie/Fruit Dips!

    Since I've been trying out the vegetarian thing, I've been eating a lot of cut-up veggies with dip. I've basically been dipping certain vegetables in certain sauces since I was a wee bairn, so I'd like to hear some new stuff. Tell me your favourites and suggest me something

    This is basically what I do so far:
    Carrots in hummus(this is new) or blue cheese dressing
    Cauliflower or broccoli in Catalina (sort of like French dressing) or blue cheese dressing

    I tried carrots in mustard today and it was pretty good. I keep Mexican restaurant cheese dip around, but don't really like it on veggies ... and I **hate** ranch dressing. I don't really eat many different kinds of veggies, but if you wanna suggest something I might give it a try.
    Thanks!

  • Puree Pumpkin or mash the shirt out of it, if you don't have a blender, with a little garlic, corriander, pepper and coconut milk ( 2 tablespoons full only)...

    mashed potatoes also with a touch of horseradish, ( 1 teaspoon), and garlic a little cream to make it smooth is nice.

    Fresh tomotoes "mashed up", with basil and a little fetta cheese, all mashed together is also nice.

    I am a savory/flavour person, sorry if the above doesn't hit your taste bugs, haha.

      • Can you please ignore my bugs?(taste bugs), hahahah to um buds? Perhaps I was having a Morton Bay Bugs thought, "sea food " or is that see food?

        I can't think of "fruit dips", with veg... Only making watermelon crush -drink which i really love in summer... by pureeing chunks with 2 cups of water.... so it's liquid.

        You could make "cherry" smoothies all by yourself with a blender? And, drop one at the bottom............

        Seriously, chutney and pickles if you like weird things actually taste good as dips as well.

        Stone fruits with 2 tablespoons of sugar, in 1/2 cup of water, cooked until soft, then mashed and still warm would be nice on pita bread with butter though...

        • I can't eat stone fruits Cherries included. They make me sick in big enough quantities (more than 1-2 cherries, seriously. But they're delish; that's why I pitch fits when there isn't one in my Cherry Limeade) No blackberries, no almonds, and certainly no peaches. A whole peach would be the end of my day.
          There's a big leaning towards mayonnaise or cheese based dips around these parts. I forgot to mention I'm looking for healthy stuff too.
          I'm going to google chutney. It sounds gross :P
