1

Gather ingredients

Gather all the necessary ingredients for the dips. Think of fresh herbs such as parsley and coriander, vegetables such as garlic and red pepper, nuts such as walnuts and cashews, and spices such as cumin and turmeric.

Make sure you have all the ingredients ready before you start making the dips. This way you can cook without interruptions and enjoy fresh flavors in your dishes. Good luck gathering the ingredients!

2

Choose your base

Choose a base for your dip, such as plant-based yogurt, hummus or avocado. Mix the chosen base with herbs of your choice, such as garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Taste and adjust the seasoning until the seasoning is perfect. Serve and enjoy your delicious homemade dipping sauce!

Experiment with flavors

Try different flavor combinations by adding herbs, lemon juice, garlic, or chili peppers to your dips.

  • Spices: Experiment with fresh herbs such as basil, parsley, or cilantro to give your dip a fresh flavor. Add these chopped herbs to your favorite sauce and taste the difference.
  • Lemon juice: A dash of lemon juice can give your dip a refreshing touch. Try adding some lemon juice to a garlic sauce for an extra kick.
  • Garlic: For garlic lovers, adding fresh or roasted garlic to your dipping sauce is highly recommended. The intense flavor will take your dip to the next level.
  • Chili Peppers: If you like some spice, add chopped chili peppers to your dipping sauce. Pay attention to the quantity, so that it does not become too spicy.

Mix and match these ingredients to create your perfect dipping sauce and discover new taste sensations!

Adjust texture

  • Add more liquid, such as water or oil, to thin the dip.

  • Mix the dip well after adding any additional liquid or ingredients so that everything is well mixed.
  • Taste the dipping sauce and add salt, pepper or other spices to adjust the seasoning if necessary.

Taste and adjust

Taste your dips first. Then add more salt if you find them a bit bland, a little sugar or honey for a sweeter taste, or a dash of lemon juice for some extra tartness. Experiment until you reach the perfect level of flavor. For example, consider adding a pinch of salt to your guacamole or some honey to your spicy dip for a balanced taste. Notice the changes in flavor as you add the ingredients and find the perfect balance that suits you.
