Greenie Tahini

20150118_151012The recipe was originally named “very green, avocado, Tahini dip”.

boring and too long.  Not inspiring, dull.

Name change.   I tried Guacamus.  Then I moved to Tahinimole.  Urgh.

Thanks to the King and his famous, “Queenie Wahine” and Mr. Right………..  new name :

Greenie Tahini 

This is one of those recipes that was a HOME RUN, 5 GOLD stars! 5stars

This week’s football snacks are including this new dip.  So savory, lots of layers of flavor, smooth, intense………can’t stop dipping.

It is a gorgeous intense healthy green color.  No, I am not trying to convince anyone.  I love it.  Mr. Right love’s it.  Zero guilt and pure flavor.  Count us in.

20150118_151233Also tried out a brand new (to me) gluten-free cracker.  Well hello, beautiful. Where have you been for the last couple years?  Glad to meet you.  Breaks in half easily, flavorful, strong enough for dipping.  Nice flavor.

Here we go:

4-6 ounces spinach (rinse, place in skillet, cook just until wilted.  Remove.)

Into the Blendtec add the following:

1 large ripe avocado, 1/3 cup tahini, juice of one lemon, 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, 2 Tablespoons cilantro, 1 teaspoon real salt & fresh ground pepper.  Add spinach and 1/4 cup water (or more for desired consistency).

Transfer to a pretty bowl (or I suppose you can serve it in the Blendtec container, not so fancy).  Add some great chips, crackers and veggies.  Say Grace (for the food, save some sports prayers for the intense fourth quarter).

Here’s hoping your team wins!

Happy Relaxing Sunday.

We are in this together.  Here’s to our health and wellness …. and Sunday afternoon HAPPY!
