I’m not big on snacky foods and if I want a snack I tend to reach for fruit…. or actually just eat another meal. However, at my personal chef job, my boss made a client this almond dip that blew my mind!!!! It was so delicious, nutty, salty, lemony, herby, aka all the things that a yummy dip should be. I decided that I had to recreate it.

I was thinking whether or not I wanted to use almonds and was griping about the fact that I had to go and buy a $12 bag of almonds just to see if this dip would work when I tried it myself. I went back and forth and finally decided, hell no, I don’t have the money for almond nor do I have time to soak them forever. So what did I do? I used ALMOND MEAL! Anthony’s Good’s had sent me a 5 pound bag of almond meal that I used maybe 1/4th of a pound of so I decided to bring it out again in an attempt to make this almond dip.

The results, not to toot my own horn, were CRAZY GOOD! I added a ton of herbs for flavor, some nutritional yeast for cheeseyness, lemon for tang, and garlic just to spice it up! When I first tried it, I was honestly really surprised at how much I liked it. I gave some to my boyfriend and he was also really surprised at the flavors and how tasty/addicting it was! I took some for a snack the next day at work and loved how it satisfied my salty cravings and also made me really full! This will definitely be a staple in our fridge and I can’t wait to make it again… possibly tonight haha.
