Basil-Avocado Dip: Awesome.
I love this one! It's great in so many ways. Use it as a vegetable or pita bread dip, as a raw sauce to go over pasta or rice, or... as a wicked salad dressing. Here's how to make it:
in a food processor:
1 avocado (peeled and pitted)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds (raw, unsalted and shelled)
1 cloves of garlic
1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 Tablespoon tahini (raw)
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 cup fresh basil (well washed)
1 1/2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice (not from a bottle!)
Let it process for a few minutes until it's really creamy and then do what you like with it! If you'd like to introduce more raw food into your diet this is a good way. You don't have to cook sauces to go over your pasta or rice (let whatever you put it on cool a bit before adding the sauce or it will cook it and lose all those amazing enzymes you were trying to get). It tastes the same as cooked, actually it's better, because you are using the real, fresh flavour of the vegetables instead of cooking it out of them, along with the fresh herbs and spices. And it takes a fraction of the preparation and clean up. Good in my books.
