View Full Version : Dips and Snacks
06-27-2005, 07:51 AM
I'm just beginning this RAW thingy and am wondering, is there a dip or snack that works for most snackers here? I like to nibble and snack on things throughout the evening and that's when I can get in trouble.
I don't mind if the snack is a veggie if I have something to dip it in that will, like, do a calypso across my tongue. :) I love hot and spicey things (kinda like the woman I married ages ago ;) )
I appreciate the way you folks share here without being nasty to one another.

I love snacky things to and couldn't find just the right thing to hit the spot, then I tryed the corn chips (frozen corn with a little chilli pepper and seasoning, bung it in the blender ,then in the dryer over night) it was the easiest thing to make and along with a salsa it was perfect for me.

By dryer, do you mean a dehydrater? I guess I'm gonna have to break down and buy one of those for myself. Momma won't understand though! :)

Hi and welcome Jimmy Bear!
Here is a dressing/dip recipe I found on this site posted by member, CarrotTop:
Here's my favorite, I call it Ranch. Very creamy and also great as a veggie dip.
1 1/2 cups cashews
1 cup water ( more if for dressing)
1 small lemon juiced
1 clove garlic
1 shy tsp salt
1 heaping tsp dried onion
dried herbs: (these are approximate, I don't really measure)
1 1/2 tsp basil
1 1/2 tsp parsley
1/2 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp sage
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp oregano
Hope that's all of it, I don't have the recipe in front of me.
It's awesome though!
btw, are you jimmybear a.k.a. charles manson a.k.a. "I just wanna be a nice guy - Please help me be nice to everyone I meet"? :D

Hi Jimmy Bear,
If you don't have a dehydrator, you can slice yams, sweet potatoes, zucchinis, carrots, parsnips, any hard type of veggie, and dip in
(insert calipso music here)
2 tomatoes (quartered)
1 tsp fresh jalepeno (seeded)
1 cup sweet white onion
1 cup shredded cabbage
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
1/2 tsp sea salt
mix all in a food processor and munch out!

I just posted a wonderful spicy dip under the post about stuffed mushrooms. Check it out.

I just love the corn chip and the flax crackers in Alissa's book. Crunchy crunchy crunchy. The no-bean hummus that VeganVixen posted a whle back is sooooo flavorful and yummy. I've been dipping everything I can find into it. It's in this thread:
By the way -- welcome, Jimmy Bear! And ... tell mama bear you just gotta have a dehydrator! She'll be won over by the scrumptious goodies that come rolling out.
Oh!! If snacking means sweets to you, you gotta make the caramel-coconut cookies that we're all currently wild about!
I've sidetracked my evening inner snack-monster by making ice cream nightly. Oh yum. Try searching for Butter Pecan Ice Cream and you'll see what I mean.

yea jummy bear I mean dehydrator, I guess I must be the only one who calls it a dryer, sorry, not sure if thats a Brit thing, an Aussie thing, or just a me thing:)
I wonder what other things we all say differently?

cactus... thats funny...my boyfriend is english and he is always laughing at me for my words for things. its the cultural differences..... but its alot of fun and we laugh about it all the time.
the other day he got fussed about the word laboratory....americans say it with a hard emphasis on lab...whilst the english dont do that.
it all sounds strange to each of us....but... its 2 cultures seprated by a common language....or something like that HA!

You asked "btw, are you jimmybear a.k.a. charles manson a.k.a. "I just wanna be a nice guy - Please help me be nice to everyone I meet"? http://rawfoodtalk.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif "
Yes Mam, I'm sometimes a Bad Boy over there and argue politics, but I was looking for a place where folks are sweet and friendly. People who are asking questions about the typical SAD diet and have probably found a better way. I think I've found that place right here. I promise, I'll not start any political debates unless it's over the difference in taste between a Gala Apple and a green one. http://rawfoodtalk.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif I think I love Alissa. Better go inform my lovely wife now! http://rawfoodtalk.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif

There's gotta be more than 3 idea's about what a chronic snacker can nibble at and not be SAD!!! Help;
Thanks to those who have thus far.

In the caramel-cookie post you'll find a recipe for some of the best and easiest fudge you could possibly want.
06-30-2005, 05:01 PM
Well I usually snack on sweet things so some of my sweet snacks include
--> Alissa's fudge balls and/or what other dried fruit/nut balls I've tried
--> sliced apple spread with almond butter, sprinkled with raisins
--> sliced bananas with macadamia butter
--> plain fruit
Savoury wise I have made both Alissa's onion dip and her mozarella cheese recipe (which I use as a dip) and just use celery sticks.

Oh my, what a prickly Bear you are!! In my post alone, I gave you four suggestions -- and posts before mine gave you four more! You mean you've gone through all those already? Come on, Jimmy, do some of your own investigating! :D <elbow jab>
Seriously, Alissa's book has sooo many snacks and there are also lots of suggestions in the archives here and also in reading through people's journals.
