So I've run out of chickpea's to make hommous and I'm looking for a dip for this weeks lunches. I swear I can remember seeing a recipe for a walnut and pepita dip somewhere but I certainly can not find it.
So I made this one up. It's actually surprisingly tasty and only requires the use of a food processor.
2 cups of walnuts that have been soaked in water for about ten to fifteen minutes, drained.
Juice of one lemon.
Quarter of a teaspoon of grated Ginger .
Quarter of a teaspoon of chopped garlic.
Two tablespoons of olive oil.
One tablespoon pickeled jalapenos.
Two teaspoons of soy sauce.
Two spring onions.
Two tablespoons fresh parsley.
Small pinch of salt and pepper.
Half a cup of water.
Throw all these ingredients into a food processor and blend until it's a pate like consistency. Depending on your food processor, you may need more or less water. I blended mine for about 7 minutes at various speeds and I'm really surprised at how tasty it is.
