Do you ever find a blog and make a ton of recipes from it and then totally trust that food blog? Well, I do. I totally trust recipes from Eat, Live, Run, The Sweet Life, & most recently Marin Mama Cooks. When I saw Marin Mama Cook’s recipe for this avocado-tahini dip I knew I’d be making it for a niner’s game soon.
David invited his brother, cousin Brandon, and Brandon’s girlfriend, Kim over to watch the game last Sunday. We enjoyed a few brewski’s and this dip together. By the end of the game, the dip was completely consumed, so I’d say it went over well. It definitely went over better than the niner’s losing to the colts (boo!). C’mon on niners! What’s going on?! It’s okay…it’s still early in the season.
The dip came together in under 10 minutes. It was super fast to prepare. Doing the dishes wasn’t too bad either, though any time the food processor is involved I dread cleaning it. Do you? I’ve been loving anything avocado lately, so this dip definitely hit the spot. I think next time I’m going to try to turn it into a guacamole hummus though and just add a can of beans and see what happens. Don’t be surprised if you see a recipe for that in the next coming weeks…
Do yourself a favor and make this recipe for the next party or game you watch. It feels pretty healthy but doesn’t lack on flavors. It is definitely reminescient of hummus with the tahini flavor, but it’s also almost like guacamole. I think it’s a winner!
