My Favourite Vegan Green Goddess Dip

The original recipe is by the amazing Shannon Leparski and The Glowing Fridge. She has some amazing recipes on her blog so go check it out!
This dip is a party favourite and has gotten me a ton of compliments at social gatherings or dinner events. What I love the most about this dip is how versatile it is; you could use this for taco night, on eggs in the morning or an avocado toast base. It's also great on chicken or fish, veggies or salad, on a sandwich, and even as a pasta sauce (weird but it works).

This sauce is packed full of so many delicious flavours, each one with a shining ingredient full of vitamins and healthy fats. I am obsessed with fresh herbs and often grow my own every summer. I love being able to use my own produce to make something for my friends and family.

The recipe is simple and you can easily change bits if you have certain preferences. I like a little heat so I usually incorporate more hot pepper than called for. The great thing about cooking is that once you have the ingredients and understand flavour combinations, you can easily adapt recipes to meet your needs. To be honest, many times I don't follow recipe measurements, I just buy the ingredients and wing it; I think I have a decent one has complained yet :p

The original recipe is by the amazing Shannon Leparski and The Glowing Fridge. Here is my adaptation with a few changes that suit my preferences!

1 Avocado, ripe
1 cup Basil, fresh
1/2 cup Cilantro, fresh
1/2 tsp Garlic
1 Jalapeno
1 Lime (juice)
1/2 cup Parsley, fresh
2 Scallions
1/4 cup Tahini
1/2 tsp Black pepper
3/4 tsp Pink Sea Salt
1 tbsp Rice Wine Vinegar
3/8 Cup Water (or to the consistency you want)

In a food processor, combine the avocado, basil, cilantro, parsley, vinegar, and water. Blend it together until your desired consistency (I like to see the green flecks of herbs and keep mine thicker - the more water you add, the thinner it will get!).

Add in the tahini, jalapeno, lime juice, scallions and salt and pepper to taste. Blend it up and serve to your guest, or to yourself. It will keep for a few days in an airtight container! Let me know what your favourite way to eat this sauce is in the comments below!
