Saturday Recipes - Dips!

Today I dream about having relaxing Saturday and enjoying some delicious dips.

I'm not a party girl so my perfect day would be cooking something delicious and watching movies with my boyfriend :)

Dips are absolutely perfect for this kind of entertainment because they are easy to make, easy to eat and delicious, plus you can have them with anything you like - toasted bread, vegetables, crisps - you name it!

I'm going to share some of my favourite dip recipes with you - enjoy :)

Perfect Hummus

Hummus is one of those perfect Middle Eastern flavours that everyone knows and likes. It will take you five minutes to make, so it's totally worth trying even if you never did before! Get this perfect recipe here!

Cranberry Bean Hummus

Hummus with a little twist :) I have to try this recipe - not only because it involves cranberry beans which I've always wanted to try, but also because it contains courgettes that I love the most! Brilliant idea from The Parsley Thief!

It's such a simple dip and one of my favourite things to snack on! If you like Mexican food this one is a must to try! You'll find the recipe here!

Baba Ghanoush

It's almost like hummus - almost, because it's a blend of aubergines, garlic, and tahini. It has a smooth, creamy texture, and a slightly smoked taste. Get the recipe here!

Pizza Dip

It's really easy to make but still it has got the gooey pizza cheesiness, rich sauce and delectable toppings.

Perfect with a baguette, it would make a great party dip! Of course if you're not a fan of the toppings you can substitute them with anything you like! Recipe here!

Cookie Dough Dip Trio

Yes, finally a sweet dip! And this is genius - I was drooling all the way through reading just the names of these three wonderful dips :)

So, we've got: double chocolate fudge cookie dough dip, peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough dip and creamy snickerdoodle cookie dough dip - which one would be your favourite?

Get the recipe here! And here you can get the original cookie dough dip recipe!
