• Madras Vegetarian Dip Mix


    East Indian meets northern California.  The resulting fusion is sublime - a totally new "comfort food" flavor.  This mix was developed for those who want something to dip into that isn't made from mayonnaise and sour cream or cream cheese.  Turn any mashed veggie into a dip by adding Madras Dip Mix and a little olive oil.  Serve with potato chips, pita chips or crackers for a completely vegetarian dip.  Madras Mashed Carrot Dip with Baked Pita Chips for dipping (pictured) is lovely accompanied by white wine.  This is perfect for your vegetarian party guests

    TIP:  Use fresh, frozen or canned veggies.  If using canned veggies, drain very well or dip will be watery.


    Vegetable Sides:  This dip mix also does double duty as a seasoning for vegetable sides.  It's beautiful with grilled or roasted fresh veggies (pictured with roasted yams and baby beets).  Toss veggies with olive oil, sprinkle on some mix and roast.  You’ll have a great, original vegetable side dish.

    Vinaigrette Seasoning:  Lovely as a vinaigrette seasoning for vegetable or pasta salads.  Madras Orzo Pasta Salad is pictured.  This is great for party buffets.

    Hummus Seasoning:  Serve Madras Hummus with fresh raw veggies (pictured) like yellow squash or sugar snap peas to offer a dip that is 100% veggie, gluten free and has almost no calories!  Just don’t tell your guests it’s actually good for them, and it will be the hit of the party for those who don’t like spicy.

    Rice Seasoning:  It does amazing things for the finished dish when added to the cooking liquid for orzo, couscous or rice pilaf.
