Special Diet Notes: Garlic Almond Dip
By ingredients, this recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, optionally gluten-free, peanut-free, soy-free, optionally vegan / plant-based, and vegetarian. Just use caution when selecting your bread for this garlic almond dip – yes, many brands do contain dairy! We like Rudi’s Bakery and Silver Hills Bakery – both brands offer both wheat and certified gluten-free hearty loaves throughout the U.S. and Canada.
No food processor? No problem. You can grind the nuts and bread (together, but usually in two batches) in a spice grinder and then blend with the remaining ingredients in your blender.
- 1 cup unsalted, roasted almonds
- 1 slice crustless whole grain dairy-free bread, torn into pieces (can sub hearty gluten-free bread)
- 1 large clove garlic
- 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- ⅔ cup So Delicious Dairy Free Original or Unsweetened Coconut Milk Beverage
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
- Add the almonds and bread to a food processor. Pulse until ground into a fine grit, then add the garlic, vinegar and salt. Continue processing until it becomes like nut butter, then with processor running drizzle in coconut milk.
- To serve place in bowl, cover with fresh parsley and serve with fresh veggie dippers and crackers.
Instead of coconut milk do you think you could add Almond milk? Have you ever tried it with almond milk?
I think it would work well with almond milk beverage.
