The first time I’ve had the privilege to use a Ninja! I’ve never seen an avocado pit disappear so quick 🙂 This works great as a dip for chips or veggies, and even better as a spread on sandwiches. Some of this on one side and some traditional hummus on the other side… it doesn’t even matter what’s in between, it’s going to be delicious!
This is one of my favorite dishes, and as with everything that I cook, it’s totally different each time. The most important parts, for me, are the sweet potato, onion, garlic, and a spice-set that includes cumin, coriander, paprika, and cayenne. This particular recipe is from November of 2015, and was created as part of an exchange I was doing for yoga classes in Portland, Oregon. Usually the sauce is tomato-based (or tomatillo), but this time I wanted to go with something creamier, with a bit of a cheesy taste to it. The cashews & macadamias give the cheesy taste, as well as quite a bit of extra protein. If you want to go a little cheaper, replace those with sunflower seeds, it won’t be quite as rich, but the flavor will be similar.
