If New Year’s resolutions have you munching your way through acres of celery and carrots sticks, add just a little fun to your crudité repertoire with this savory, sensational dip. Red bell peppers give the perfect flavor, and cashews add richness and a bit of protein. Beware: you may never eat an un-dipped vegetable again.
What You Need:
- 2 cups cashew pieces
- 1 roasted red pepper (or three large pieces from a jar)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil (optional)
- Salt and pepper to taste
What You Do:
- Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl frequently.
- Process for 3 minutes to make the dip completely smooth.
