This is a phenomenal dip or sauce. I made a new batch every other day all summer long as long as I had access to fresh basil. The first time I did, I I added some raw milk cheddar to the mix also, which was different but still good.
Try as a dip for veggies, a thick salad dressing, or a sauce. Great with carrots or mushrooms of almost any variety.
Tikka Masala is an Indian dish usually made with Chicken, as well as some combination of creams and tomato sauce. I realized this old favorite would be an easy dish to re-create raw. It includes several optimizations that can be foregone to save time and effort. The quickest version of this recipe can be made with two cups of coconut milk, no almond milk, and no irish moss. I recommend going all the way if you want to imitate its namesake - it will still be quick and easy.
I am trying to cleanse my system and rebuild my good flora - I just started throwing everything recommended into the blender and voila - a yummy dip!! My naturopath told me to eat as much tumeric as I could stand - sooooo, here I go!
Sorry things aren't specific - but it was very last minute - and it turned out very yummy! I poured it over some lightly steamed veggies (carrots and cabbage and onions) - but I also dipped fresh, raw carrots in it.
I am sure the true chefs in this group can fine tune it for us all! This would be a yummy soup - I like my dips a little thicker so I went easier on the water and cider.
