5 Delicious Vegan Party Dips

It’s party time! Unfortunately there aren’t many healthy treats to eat—especially if you are vegan. If you are like me, you just end up not eating anything. Here are five easy and tasty vegan gluten free recipes for your party.

This dip is low in sodium, monounsaturated fat and a good source of lutein, an antioxidant that may protect vision. Best of all it is fresh and tasty. I enjoy this mixture on mixed green salads.

1 ripe avocado, peeled & pitted
1 tsp. onion, finely minced
1 stalk of celery, finely chopped
1 – 2 tbsp. lemon juice
tomato, chopped

2. Add onion, celery and lemon juice and mix in well.

4. Place in serving bowl on a plate surround with cucumber rounds, slices of radishes and corn chips.

Vegan Zucchini Pesto

Vegan Zucchini Pesto

This zucchini pesto is lighter than regular pesto as it has less oil and adds a refreshing zest of zucchini.

Ingredients:

2 cups grated zucchini
1/2 cup fresh basil
1/2 cup spinach or kale
2/3 + 1/3 c for later cup pine nuts
1 – 5 cloves garlic (optional)
1/4 – 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
1/4 -3/4 teaspoon Himalayan Salt
1/2 cup olive oil

Directions:

  1. Put zucchini, olive oil, garlic, and salt into a blender.
  2. Blend coarsely and then add pine nuts, basil and spinach.
  3. Blend until smooth. Pesto is best to not be completely smooth; a little texture is good.
  4. Now remove from blender and mix in the extra 1/3 cup pine nuts.
  5. Enjoy with pasta or use as a dip.

Here is another great dip too: Tangy Black Bean Dip
