Tangy avocado & red pepper dip: vegan

This might be the simplest, quickest recipe ever – it literally requires no thought or skill, but it tastes so awesomely incredible. It’s so good that I’ve been making it almost every day for the last two weeks, and each time I end up eating at least half of it straight out the blender with a spoon! The mix of avocado with red pepper, lime and tomatoes is just so wonderfully sweet, creamy and tangy – there is spinach thrown in there too, but as with many of my recipes it’s just there for extra green goodness, you can’t taste it. The whole thing is actually just so outrageously creamy that it really feels like it’s full of cream, the same kind of texture as a sour cream or mayonnaise, but a million times richer in flavour! It goes so well with absolutely everything too, I love it with carrot, pepper and zucchini crudités; spread over raw crackers or gluten free buckwheat toast; mixed into zucchini noodles with a sprinkling of pumpkin seeds and used as a pesto for veggie quinoa bowls. It’s the easiest way to add an incredible flavour to anything! Honestly if you need a three minute lunch or snack make this, you’ll fall so in love with it so quickly – it’ll energise you, satisfy all your hunger and cravings and fill you with so much goodness.

The combination of ingredients will also do wonders for you, especially the spinach which is literally the world’s healthiest food, it’s packed with vitamins and minerals with one cup giving you more than ten times your recommended daily amount of vitamin K and more than three times your need of vitamin A. This is awesome as Vitamin K is especially important for maintaining bone health and enabling healthy blood sugar regulation, while vitamin A is essential for strengthening your body’s immunity against infection, as well as helping it to build and maintain clean, healthy skin. It also contains a whole host of other key nutrients – manganese, magnesium, iron, vitamin C & E, calcium, potassium, B vitamins, fibre, protein and antioxidants to name just a few! All of which help to build a strong, healthy, disease free body. The avocado enhances all this goodness as it helps you absorb nutrients, while also strengthening the antioxidant and anti-inflammtaroy properties along with the tomatoes and red pepper. So you have so many reasons to eat as much of this as you like!

Squeeze the limes, remove the seeds from the inside of the pepper, peel and pit the avocado and then simply place these with the rest of the ingredients into your food processor and blend for about two minute until a creamy dip forms. Then scoop it into a bowl and enjoy!
