Spring Onion Dip | Three Ingredient Scallion Dip Recipe | Gluten Free and Vegan

Hi Supermoms,

I am always thrilled to create and share quick and easy recipes. Did I share with you all that I have amazing and talented friends who are such warm human beings. I feel blessed and am so grateful for being a small part of their lives. They are so gracious and generous to share their family recipes .  I am  so happy to share the recipes shared by them . They are all tried and tested and also a big hit in their homes.

Recently when I visited my friend Kavita's home, she asked me to taste a dip/spread that she had made and quizzed me about the main ingredient. The dip was so tasty and tasted familiar but I failed to answer the right main ingredient. I was so surprised to learn from her that it was 'spring onion/scallion'. When she shared the entire recipe with me , I was even more excited , as it had only 3 main ingredients - sesame seeds, peanuts and scallions !!

Kavita is always so excited to cook and feed her friends and family. 

We had a good time catching up and I came home so refreshed. Don't we all feel refreshed after time with good friends? But , that scallion dip was on top of my mind. Next day, I went to the market to get a fresh bunch of spring onions and recreated Kavita's recipe. In fact, in my excitement, I forgot to roast dry red chillies and added red chilli powder instead. But it tasted equally good. So you can try both ways.  It was simply delicious ! 

You can serve them along with crackers, chips, savoury biscuits, pita bread or even use them as a sandwich spread. I have tried all of the above, they taste amazing. I even made mini dosa using my Ragi Lentil Dosa batter  ( dosa tacos) and spread the scallion dip. Simply amazing and so healthy. You can store this dip in a clean and dry glass bottle , add a teaspoon of oil on top.
