Indian Spinach Dip

.

Ingredients (use vegan versions):


  • 1/2 of a large bag of spinach
  • 1/4 cup of red bell peppers, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable stock
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of Garam Masala**
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder/garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup cooked lentils/chickpeas, your choice
  • splash of apple juice, lemon, or both
  • salt and pepper to desired amount
  • 1/4 cup green onions

Directions:


Cook the spinach, green onions and all
the spices/juices/veggie stock in a
wok-type pan for a couple minutes with
a bit of water till spinach is
properly wilted. You also want it to
be somewhat “juicy” and for there to
be some liquid left in the pan.


Take this cooked spinach mix and place
in a blender with the cloves of
garlic, the lentils, and the red
peppers and puree to desired
consistency.


This goes great with potatoes, basmati
rice, and especially pitas that have
been warmed in an oven till they are a
bit crispy. You could also serve this
together with hummus.


Indian spice mix (comprised of: cumin, black pepper, coriander, clove, cardamom, cinnamon,
nutmeg, mace). Probably can be found at most grocery stores, if not try specialty/health
stores.


Enjoy!


Serves: 2-3
