Big Daddy Dip

Big Daddy Dip (Baba Ghanoush)

Big Daddy Dip (Baba Ghanoush)

Our Baba Ghanoush, that tasty Middle Eastern eggplant dish, is called Big Daddy Dip.

We are taking liberties on the translation, but baba means father and well, Ghanoush just sounds cool. Eggplant is a vegetable we love, plus it is delicious and we wanted to re-create this dip, Outlaw style. Although this dip works wonders as a dip for fresh veggies, it is also fantastic when paired with fresh sourdough bread. Most Baba Ghanoush recipes require removal of the eggplant skin, but not here – that’s where most of the nutrients can be found.

Rosemary Beets with Beet Greens

Rosemary Beets

The sweetness of beets, the earthiness of rosemary along with a dash of dried mustard create a savory treat. Serve with the greens to complete a wonderful culinary experience. Hint: Buy your beets at a farmer’s market or specialty local grocery store to get the greens attached and in good condition – they are delicious, nutritious, and often thrown away in transit!

No Beef Dip

Today we made No Beef Dip. It was a huge success and everyone loved it! Instead of beef we used portobello mushrooms which we roasted with a little bit of olive oil, garlic and some secret ingredients. Then we sliced it fine and served it up with caramelized onion on a wonderful toasted seed bun. The dip was a savory and delicious vegetarian dip made with some of our secret ingredients.

A long time ago, when we were carnivorous, we enjoyed a beef dip every now and again. We were thinking that it would be nice to have a similar, but more animal friendly, and much healthier version of the old fashion beef dip. So we came up with No Beef Dip. It is made with succulent and meaty Portobello mushrooms that have been lovingly roasted. The dip is delicious and nutritious and it too is made from mushrooms. Once you try our No Beef Dip, you just might faint from pure pleasure. To make a full meal, you could add some mashed potatoes and salad. If you just want to eat No Beef Dip, then you might want to double up the recipe.
