This thick and creamy Turkish Nut & Yogurt Dip is chock full of ground nuts and bold flavor. Perfect with toasted pita chips, spread onto sandwiches, or as part of a gourmet veggie platter!
Alright, the first thing we need to talk about is that stray piece of parsley on the grilled pita bread in the photo above. I garnished the pita bread with some chopped parsley, then I guess all but one piece fell off when I grabbed it for a photo. I didn’t notice until now and it’s LITERALLY KILLING ME.
Alright, moving on then.
I shared a quick behind-the-scenes shot of this recipe on instagram the day I made it and three of my friends snapped me (@wanderlustkitch) to ask if there was any left and if they could come over. I told them it was all gone, which was a lie (SORRY FRIENDS), but I really, really needed to eat it all myself.
I can get a bit possessive over my food, which is an issue that I’m aware of and not working on.
This recipe comes together SO quick, there’s really no reason why you can’t make it every day. Which you’re going to want to once you get a taste of the heavenly goodness that is this Turkish Nut and Yogurt dip.
Just dry-toast some pine nuts for a minute or two, then chuck them in a food processor (this mini version is the love of my life, see Amazon link below) with walnuts and garlic. Grind it all up, then fold it into some Greek yogurt seasoned with olive oil and dill.
I might even suggest that you drizzle a bit more olive oil on top for good measure.
Of course, I ended up gorging myself with allofthefood before I even made it to 4pm, so all I let myself have for dinner was a
bottle glass of wine.
