Vegetable Dip

I discovered a fantastically tasty way to eat an absurd amount of raw vegetables and call it a snack.

Onion breath dip
Onions are great for escorting colds to the door. Burdock is a cleaner-upper root vegetable from Japan. This dip is essentially an immune boost formula in food form.  Make this dip in the winter and have it on celery, as a condiment, dip carrots in it....

1 medium beet, chopped
2 inch piece of burdock root, chopped (leave out if you don't find this)
chopped 1/4 onion (purple, yellow or white)
a couple handfuls of parsley (or cilantro!)
two pinches of salt
1 Tbsp grated ginger
juice of 1/2 lemon

Put all ingredients into food processor and get it going. Scrape off sides and keep blending until chunky, but uniformly smooth. Store in the fridge in an airtight container. Chew on some fennel seeds to get the onion breath down.


  1. Nooooooo. Not onions! I'll give it a go, and let you know.

    1. You could try garlic or radishes instead! Let me know how it goes.
