Recipe of the Week: Balsamic Dip for Protein and Veggies
This easy to prepare dip that doesn’t require any cooking was created by chef and Go Figure co-owner, David, and served at our recent Open House. When you’re looking for something simple to add flavor and healthy fats to your meal, here’s the ticket.
½ cup balsamic vinegar (Alessi brand is particularly flavorful and sold at most grocery stores nationwide)
¼ cup olive oil
2-3 cloves garlic
½ tsp. xanthan gum (thickener)
½ tsp. agave
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
¼ cup water
Blend all ingredients in blender and you have a nice dip for cooked or raw veggies. It can also be drizzled on meat, seafood, or salads. This recipe will make enough for several servings, and leftovers can be stored in a jar in fridge for later use.
