I could eat this every night for dinner.
Sometimes it’s a challenge to not have it, and instead try a new recipe.
Because I know it will be tasty every time.
I won’t feel the need to eat anything else after I enjoy this.
This recipe satisfies and delights!
And, it takes less than 15 minutes to make.
It’s perfect after a busy day at work.
And, it digests quickly.
I don’t get a bloated over-full feeling after eating this.
I can have it for dinner, and pass out in an hour and half…no problem.
Here’s the recipe!
- 1/4 cup walnuts, soaked for 4-5 hours, rinsed & drained
- 1 tbsp ground flax and chia
- 5 medjool dates, pitted

Serve up with veggies of your choice. My current favorites include: purple cabbage, romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, and cucumbers.
Customize The Recipe According To Your Dosha
Vata – The dip recipe is vata pacifying. Serve it with root veggies, like carrots, beets, rutabaga, and parsnips to increase grounding energy. Feel free to add more red pepper flakes or even throw in part of a hot pepper to increase warming quality. For the spice of your choice, choose vata-soothing spices like: allspice, anise, basil, black pepper, caraway, coriander, cumin, dill, fennel, ginger, mustard, oregano, paprika, parsley, rosemary, saffron, savory, tarragon, thyme, or turmeric. Be sure to leave the dip out at room temperature until serving, so it’s not ice cold out of the fridge.
Pitta – Be mindful of how your body responds to red pepper flakes, green onions, and garlic. These ingredients may aggravate pitta. For the spice of your choice, choose pitta-soothing spices like basil, coriander, cumin, dill, fennel, fresh ginger, parsley, saffron, tarragon, or turmeric. Serve with cooling cucumber, lettuces, cabbage, and bell pepper.
