Next – Must-have mushrooms With… Omega’s Alive!
Time for some variety on a tasty dip that may feel familiar!
For a boost of good omegas (ideal for cardiovascular, joint, brain and skin health)
The perfect dip, spread or stuffing – for example with ‘Must-have mushrooms’.
2 cups fresh basil, chopped 2
2 tbsp fresh oregano, chopped
1 tbsp fresh sage, chopped
¼ cup pinenuts
3/4 cup walnuts (pre-soaked overnight, rinsed and drained before use)
1 tsp brown miso paste
3-4 tbsp cold pressed olive oil
What to do
In your food processor, process all the ingredients (except the olive oil). A slightly chunky consistency is ideal.
Makes the ideal stuffing for ‘Must-have mushrooms’, or simply served as a dip.
Fabulous as a spread on raw or rice crackers, and to top off a romaine salad.
Top tips for a Great Dip
