Raw Onion Dip

I've mentioned before how much I enjoy Alissa Cohen's "Living on Live Food." It's full of great recipes that are raw, vegan, and most importantly, tasty!

I was looking for something to dip my "Flax Crackers with Everything" into and thought I'd flip through her book for something raw and delicious. I discovered her "French Onion Dip" and immediately thought that I should give it a try.

I've made a few changes and added some things, and I think it really kicks it up a notch. It's creamy, it's delicious, and it's perfect for dipping. I also used it in a wrap as a base for some sprouts, fresh cucumbers, and tomatoes, and it was delicious!

Raw Onion Dip

2 cups raw macadamia nuts
3/4 cup water
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp celery seed
1 cup diced onion

In a food processor, combine nuts, water, salt, garlic powder, and celery seed until creamy. This took a minute or so for me. Scoop into bowl and stir in onion. Allow to chill in the fridge for a few hours.
