On a recent trip to our Hawaiian turmeric farm to see the tail end of our turmeric Spring harvest, one of our farmers, Hugh, blended up a version of this tasty, locally grown Macadamia Nut Turmeric Dip.
When I tasted it I could not guess Hugh’s secret ingredient and when he finally told me what it was all the flavors came together! His secret ingredient: balsamic vinegar. He used a beautiful aged variety, but any nice quality balsamic vinegar works well.
Blend this up next time you are in the mood for a nearly raw dip with galaxies of flavor.
1 cup raw macadamia nuts
1/8 cup organic olive oil
1 clove garlic
- Soak raw macadamia nuts over night in 6 oz of Temple Turmeric
- The next day, blend the nuts with soaking liquid and all remaining ingredients
- Serve with your favorite crackers or crudite (raw vegetables)
- Watch it disappear!
