Southwest Dipping Sauce

Oh my gosh!  This southwest dipping sauce is F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C!!!  The dipping possibilities are endless!  We enjoyed this on a bed of romaine with a Sunshine Falafel Burger.  I just recently tried the Sunshine burgers for the first time since they were on sale at our local coop.  They have 9 grams of protein and are gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and vegan ~ best of all, they are awesome tasting!

    The dip sounds delicious! What is Falafel? What does it taste like?

    1. Jen

      Hi Keri! Falafel is a middle-eastern food. Traditionally it’s basically chickpeas mashed with other spices and deep fat fried. However, these Sunshine burgers are a healthy version of that ~ they utilize organic cooked brown rice, organic cooked chick peas, organic ground raw sunflower seeds, organic cooked yellow split peas, organic tahini (organic ground toasted sesame seeds), organic cumin, organic garlic, organic parsley, sea salt; bake in the oven until crispy. Yum yum!

    this looks good and a nice way to spice up vegenaise ! i like the stuff but get sick of it pretty quick

      Thanks Kaity! Vegenaise worked as a great transitional product for me coming off the Standard American Diet. But these days it’s used more as the exception than the rule. I try not to rely too much on condiments with the exception of organic mustards, organic healthy oils (flax, olive, coconut), hot sauce, etc.

    What is Franks hot sauce? Same as tabasco sauce? This sounds so good.

    1. Jen

      Hi Joanne, it’s like Louisiana hot sauce…different than tabasco sauce. It contains: Aged Cayenne Red Peppers, Distilled Vinegar, Water, Salt, Natural Flavor and Garlic Powder. Pretty clean ingredients. I love to use this to make vegan buffalo sauce (50% Frank’s hot sauce and 50% Earth Balance vegan butter). Thanks for stopping by ExEv! 🙂
