Laura's Garlic Herb Dip!
Laura is a sweet sister in Christ I have known for quite a while but never had the chance to really get to know until recently. For this I must thank Marie. =D Laura is pretty amazing and talented and I've been blessed to get to know her more through our emails, produce section conversation and her blog.
Her most recent blog post is her Garlic Herb Dip and I made it the same day I read the post. I used chives I'd purchased but everything else was from our garden. I totally chickened out on the amount of garlic and used only one clove for the smallish portion I made. Since only Marc and I were home that night it didn't seem like we'd need too much. Two other changes - I was out of paprika so I sprinkled in a little sumac which was yummy. A little dash of balsamic vinegar was a spontaneous decision and turned out to be really good.
The gluten free flat bread I made was probably my worst attempt ever (just look at it!) but it didn't really matter too much when each bite was dripping in olive oil and herbs. =D
The herbs I had on hand were a little different than what Laura used but it was absolutely amazing. We spooned it on our veggies and even our salad and devoured the bowl in record time. I could have doubled or tripled it and I think we would have still finished it off.
Tonight I'll be making it again and plan to double the amount and add much more garlic. It will make the leftover mediocre flat bread delicious.
And how about the Cha Cha kitchen towel? Is that the coolest ever? My equally sweet sister in Christ, Ruth, made a set for my birthday in happy colors for my kitchen. I am so blessed.
