Happy Meatless Monday all! As you may know from my previous post I’ve been embracing various raw vegan recipes and so far I’ve been loving them! I just love the fact that they are so simple, take only a minute to prepare and yet are so delicious. And I can’t stress enough how healthy these raw vegan recipes are. I really feel the difference when having a raw vegan meal in a good way. I mean, I feel really well nourished. All these raw veggies, raw nuts and a good olive oil, they really do wonders. I am definitely not a vegan, I like all kinds of food but I believe there should be a balance and we should aim eating more fruit and veggies, especially raw ones.
Back to the recipe again. 🙂 So what I made is Zucchini & Cashew Dip which tasted a lot like pesto. I had it with carrot sticks, peppers & cucumbers.
This zucchini dip is just divine, I absolutely love it. It’s perfect for the hot summer day or simply when you’d like to have a light and refreshing meal(or dip in this case) 🙂 You can add it to your salad, pasta or just dip yummy veggies into it. You can also have it on some crispy garlic bread. That would be too tasty!
Here’s what you need for this tasty Zucchini Cashew Dip.
- 2 zucchini, cut in chunks
- 150g/5oz raw cashew nuts
- 1 garlic clove
- 3tbsp olive oil
- lemon juice, if wished
- Simply combine all the ingredients together and blitz to a smooth consistency. If wished, add more olive oil.
- Serve with some carrot sticks or cucumber sticks.
Tip: Why not whip in that zucchini dip into your pasta next time! It is delicious!
