All barbecued food is better with dips. A homemade dip is a great addition to your barbecue spread, and with no cooking time need, you can prepare them the day before and refrigerate them so they are ready as soon as your guests arrive.
Try some of these ideas for yourself. Remember to check out our Crispy Tofu Sticks which are the ideal veggie BBQ food to have with dips.
3 ripe avacodos
1 red onion
1 fresh chilli
1/2 roughly chopped fresh coriander
Finely chop the tomato, red onion and chilli (remembering to deseed the chilli) and put into a mixing bowl. Add the coriander, juice of one lime and flesh of the three avacados. Mash together until all the ingredients are mixed together well.
If you are storing in the fridge over night, place an avacado stone into the dip and cover with clingflim – this will help prevent it from going brown.
15oz tinned chickpeas drained and rinsed
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1 clove garlic, chopped
This is a very simple and easy hummus recipe. All you need to do is stick it all in a food processor and blend together. Done!
Black Bean Dip
15 oz tinned black beans drained and rinsed
2 tablespoons of black bean liquid from the same tin
1/4 of a small red onion
½ a tomato
1 garlic clove
1 teaspoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 pinch cayenne pepper
Once again nice and simple, whack everything in a food processor and blend together. The brown colour may not be too appealing, but the taste will more than make up for it.
