food:crudites with sesame dip


I try not to eat anything that isn't really yummy. I do stay away from processed foods but I enjoy foods from health food cook books to my favorite homemade chocolate chip cookies. This recipe is from Sakoutis (of Blueprint Cleanse) a raw food-ist via Domino Magazine. It is so delicious that I just made some to bring to the office for lunch tomorrow and I can't stop eating it.
Ingredients:
Yields 1 Cup (4 servings)
6 tbsp. raw almond butter
5 tbsp. raw sesame butter or halvah
2 tbsp. cold-pressed olive oil, plus additional if serving as a dressing
5 tbsp. Bragg liquid aminos or nama shoyu (raw soy sauce)
2 tbsp. raw apple-cider vinegar
1 clove garlic, peeled and chopped
pinch of cayenne
crudités: celery sticks, cucumber sticks, radishes
Combine almond and sesame butters, oil, liquid aminos, vinegar, garlic and cayenne in a food processor; pulse to a thick puree. Serve with raw vegetables.
