Entertaining can be especially tricky when you are serving guests with food allergies or dietary restrictions. But this party-perfect vegan appetizer recipe pleases all since it’s vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, and nut-free. The tasty dip will convince even the pickiest of eaters to enjoy their veggies.
This dish is also antioxidant-rich thanks to the pop of vibrant color and also powerful (and delicious) nutrients from Japanese yam and purple cauliflower. The hue of these purple vegetables comes from anthocyanins, which have anti-inflammatory properties and therefore may help to reduce or prevent inflammation in the body.
The green goddess dip is also chock full of nutrients. Its base is avocado which is full of fiber–one avocado contains about 13 grams–which will help keep you full longer. Avocado is also a great source of healthy fat since it is high in heart healthy monounsaturated fat.
This vegan appetizer is great served at a cocktail party or as a starter to any meal. Plus, the dip can double as a dressing when thinned out with water. This versatile recipe is certain to become a staple in every plant-loving kitchen.
