Vegan Veggie Dip Tahini Dill

A Favorite Dip for Bite-size Veggies

Are you looking for a healthy veggie dip? Maybe an alternative to store-bought Ranch dressing which seems to be as much of a staple in American households as ketchup?

While I love homemade ranch dressing, I like to mix up the dips offered to my family at lunch or for snack. This full-flavored dip is one of our favorites! I just got a thumbs-up “yum” from my five-year old the other day!

A Nutritional, Versatile Vegan Veggie Dip: Tahini Dill

This dip is so versatile! Great for every-day snacking or for parties. Surround it with fresh, chopped veggies and lightly-toasted, whole-grain pita bread. Add a bowl of mixed olives and you’ve got yourself a mediterranean spread.

With some added water, this dip transforms into a delicious, creamy dressing for salads.

Sesame seeds are rich in beneficial minerals. Tahini contains 20% protein, making it a satisfying staple for lunch or in-between meals. Incorporate more Tahini in your family’s diet with my recipe for Garbanzo Bean Hummus.
