Wasabi Dip with Crudités

Whether you’re watching football (I hear there’s an important game in a couple weeks), hosting an intimate gathering (perhaps a re-planned wedding; something small because of the pandemic), or you just want to take some Instagram-worthy food photos while you satisfy your urge to snack on something tasty, this Wasabi Dip with Crudités recipe is perfect.

The dip is made with just 4 simple ingredients: mayonnaise, San-J Tamari, wasabi paste, and sugar. Feel free to use egg-free mayonnaise, if needed, and you could swap the sugar for granulated Swerve or coconut sugar for a refined sugar-free option.

The flavor of this dip gives it a real “wow” factor – as does the presentation! Serve this with a colorful assortment of vegetables and cooked new potatoes and if you want to take it a step further, carve a bowl out of a purple cabbage to hold the dip.

How to Make a Cabbage Bowl:

    1. Simply cut a little bit off the bottom (enough to make it flat enough to not roll around), then cut a little bit off the top to make it flat so that it’s easier to work with.
    2. Next, poke a sharp knife into the center, about 1 inch from the edge, and begin carving a circle.
    3. You can then use a smaller knife (or a sharp enough grapefruit spoon) to cut small chunks out of the circle at a time until you get it deep enough for the dip.
    4. Use the excess cabbage you cut for another recipe – sauteed cabbage and veggies, in a salad, in coleslaw, in a curry, etc.
