Don’t you love those recipes you make that taste so delicious your guests think you must have spent hours making it?
The compliments come rolling in and as they do, you sit there quietly recalling how very easy and quick the recipe was to make.
Do you tell them? Or do you let them think you’re fit to be the next contestant on Iron Chef America?
We’ll leave that decision to you, of course. But you might want to start working on your story because this recipe is going to be one of those easy but elegant and tasty dishes that have your guests thinking you're a culinary genius.
(And let’s be clear - you are! Because finding the perfect recipe - and making it your own - is half the battle.)
This garlicky probiotic pea dip is the perfect appetizer for your next get together, or even just to put out as a snack for your family as you prepare dinner any night of the week.
The bright green color of the fiber-rich peas is accentuated with the squeeze of lemon that adds a little bit of tang to the dip. The coconut aminos give it a touch of sweetness to compliment the other savory flavors, adding another dimension of flavor to this simple recipe.
The peas and tahini provide a great source of protein, and of course, the gut love from Just Thrive Probiotic rounds out this home run of a healthy recipe.
You can serve this dip as an appetizer with gluten free crackers or chips. You might also consider baking some sweet potato rounds and using them as a base on which to place a dollop of dip and serve these warm as an elegant hors d'oeuvre. The contrast of the color of a bright orange yam with the bright green of the pea dip only serves to increase the appeal and nutritional content of the recipe.
However you choose to enjoy this dip, rejoice in the fact that it will take you all of 60 seconds to prepare, making it one of your new favorite go-to recipes.
