This is a fun and easy raw recipe that is CRAZY HEALTHY and TASTES AWESOME that I just made with mind-hurting detail this past weekend, so here it is:
1Medium/Large Butternut Squash, rind and seeds removed.
(enough for 2 cups of raw, rough chopped squash.)
1/4 to 1/2 cup of tahini or raw sesame seeds, depending on taste
Juice of 1 Lemon
2-3 Tbsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 large clove of Garlic
2 Tbsp chopped Red Onion
1 tsp ground Cumin
1 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 cup of fresh, finely chopped Parsley
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
Half a head of fresh Purple Cabbage, cut into triangles.
*See alternate flavours and ways to jive this mutha up at the end of the recipe.*
First, lightly pulse the rough chopped squash and garlic in a food processor or a blender until it is all a uniform size, in bits approximately the size of rice. Add all other ingredients (except for the ones you set aside, Spanky…)and process until it is a smooth and creamy mixture. If you are using raw whole sesame, you must process it into a flour using a coffee grinder or food processor. Gradually drizzle a bit of olive oil in as it’s stirred to make a thick paste, and add that to the processed squash. Do your best to not rub this all over your tits, even though it will be tempting.
When this shat get it’s dip on after some blending, stir in the parsley and spoon it into a bowl. Drizzle the olive oil over the hummus, and sprinkle with paprika. Set this bowl in the centre of a plate and arrange the Cabbage “chips” around it and serve. Get ready to punch the first dick who proclaims that these aren’t actually chips, and enjoy!
This a great tasting dip all around, but feel free to add other delicious flavours, pureed or chopped fine and stirred in. Some good ideas: Olive Tapenade (recipe coming soon), saked and pureed Sundried Tomatoes, Marinated Artichokes, Red Bell Pepper, Pureed Pine Nuts, Rosemary, Pureed Chipotle, Liquid Smoke, or anything else you can think of. Except kerosene. I wouldn’t add kerosene. Or Cat hair. Maybe just stick to those ideas I already said maybe.
