This is a deliciously unusual, healthy dip-twist compared to the usual veggie dips out in market. Turmeric is a very potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.
What an appetizing way to enjoy these super healthy benefits wrapped up in this yummy, easy to prepare dip!
1 tsp ground tumeric powder
2 tbsp olive oil
1 mini cucumber - grated
1 cup vegan plain yogurt
1 tsp chopped garlic or minced (1 clove)
1 tbsp chopped fresh mint
1 tsp fresh ginger - minced
1/2 tsp lemon zest
Salt & Pepper to taste
Step 1: Tumeric Roux
Heat your oil and tumeric spice in a saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until it begins to bubble up. (usually takes 2-3 minutes) Remove from heat and let cool. (do not burn or you will have to start over) Once cooled, scrape into a mixing bowl and set aside.
Step 2: Cucumber
Coarsely shred cucumber with a box grater...same size as shredded cheese. Next, squeeze out the moisture from your shredded cucumber and add it to your tumeric roux that you set aside in step 1.
Step 3: MIX
Add remaining ingredients and mix well
That's it! Serve with your fav veggies
