I had a request from a friend of mine this morning to buy our yummo spinach dip from the RG Provedore but since we are closed I told Pam I would post it on social media so everyone can have a go at making it…
Basil is at its absolute best being in season at the moment. If you don’t have any maybe you could yell out to your neighbours' fence to see if they have any or put it out there on Facebook, someone kind may be able to pick some and leave it in a box in front of their house or something like that…
You need never buy another dip again… You can substitute the greens for beetroot or chickpeas… This is super easy and a great little snack for the kids as I know mine are eating me out of house and home… enjoy x

- Add the Cashews and pulse briefly 3 - 4 times to achieve a chunky consistency.
