My recent Parker’s PolkaDot Party (The Triple P) was such a blast and the food was so good that I thought it only fair to share a few fab recipes. My GF, Leith, made this crazy-delish dish which I personally devoured. She found it on Pinterest and then modified it to be vegan/non-dairy with a gluten-free option. Talk about inclusive food.
The LM Dip Supreme
1 1/2 cups vegan, gluten free hummus
1 cup non-dairy tzatziki (recipe below)
1 cup tomato, diced (mix with 1 tbsp lemon juice)
1/2 cup cucumber, cubed
1/4 cup red onions, diced
1/4 cup kalamata olives, chopped
1 handful fresh oregano, chopped
4 whole wheat pitas, cut into triangles OR gluten-freecrackers/rice crackers (for celiacs)
Optional: 1/4 cup goats-milk feta / organic feta (crumbled). Good for those who like dairy but can’t have cow’s milk. And I didn’t even see the cheese as it was on the side, so please believe me that it doesn’t make the dip.
Assemble dip starting with the hummus and stacking each ingredient on top of the last.
1 1/2 cups plain soy yogurt / or plain organic yogurt
1 cucumber, grated and well drained
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp lemon juice
dash of pepper
sea salt to taste
1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
1/4 tsp paprika
Mix together by hand, and layer with ingredients above.
