View Full Version : Need a good dip for flax crackers
03-28-2006, 01:34 PM
Sometimes it is hard for me to eat flax crackers unless I make them really flavorful. But this batch was made with salt and chili powder, so they aren't very flavor-packed. Does anyone have some good suggestions for a quick easy dip I can make?

Allisa's veggie/flax crackers are so very flavorfully delicious. The usual flax crackers do nothing to curb my cracker cravings, however. So, I know exactly what you mean.
I like for a dip the Nacho Cheese in Allissas book. On top of the nacho Cheese, I like to spread on the "Coffee Grinder refired beans". If you do a search, you'll find it. Also, the Nuggets recipie is better for a dip then dried into nuggets.
The Mock salmon Pate is another simple, yummie dip.

Great! Thanks. I have Alissa's cookbook so I'll look those up.
I'm going to have to start making some veggie flax crackers. I used to make just plain flax (with salt, maybe chili spice) but it kinda sticks to your teeth. I tried some amazing flax crackers at the local co-op. They were raw with flax, corn and other veggies.. SO good but she wanted $8 for a small bag :eek: No thanks, I'll make them myself!

mock salmon pate'
the pesto for the mushrooms is an excellent dip
cashew sour cream, then just add some fresh sliced red pepper, or cucumber, or tomatoes
sun dried tomatoes in the cashew sour cream is an excellent dip too
the meatloaf recipe, not dehydrated is my very favorite. mmmmmmmmm

Alissa's onion dip is also great with flax crackers!!
I make the onion dip with cashews, though...mac nuts are kinda hard to come by around here.
I also make the Onion Dip with cashews. I often blend in half of the onions and a small handful of baby spinach. Then I stir in the rest of the onions.

Thanks it all sounds so good :D
I love cashews, so I probably will make the onion dip with them. Mac nuts can be $$$ too. I've read that cashews aren't the healthiest to choose though. But I've also read that cashews are very good for you. :eek:
Alissa's dill dip is a fave around here -- and so quick and easy too! My non-raw hubby laps it up!

I usually take two avocados, one small tomato, 1/4 of and onion, 1/2 red pepper, some chili powder, Celtic sea salt, and pulse chop in the food processor. It's very refreshing and not so heavy like the nut dips are. You can enjoy this with very plain crackers. I sometimes eat this in the morning an hour after my juice or smoothie. Hope you enjoy! :D

I don't know about Quick N' Easy, but I do know that I would like to try an eggplant dip. I am guessing that you would need to blend up the eggplant, some olive oil, garlic, sea salt and pepper and a tiny tiny bit of apple cider vineger in a blender and then I would dehydrate it for a few hours. I loved the eggplant dip at "It's Greek To Me", a greek restaraunt in Minneapolis.
