I created this dip for one of my ‘nukery’ (nutrition+cooking) classes to pair with my Herby Almond crackers. It’s a delicious, savoury creamy dip that has an intense flavour, making it nearly impossible to resist! I love it as a perfect last minute throw-together when friends drop over unexpectedly OR for a stress-free dinner party appetiser; I made a double batch for a recent dinner party and before my girlfriends and I could get to it, the men had polished it off!
Olives are rich in phytonutrients that provide antioxidant and anti-inflamatory nutrients which help protect our bodies.
Olives are also a good source of phytoestrogens which play a part in balancing our hormonal system, helping with menopausal symptoms.

1 tablespoon tahini paste
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoon dulse flakes
1 teaspoon chia seeds (ground or whole)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon Celtic sea salt
- Place all the ingredients into a high speed blender and blend for a minute or two until the dip is smooth and creamy. And that’s it!
