ASIAN PROTEIN DIP | By Hubert Cormier
Asian food is often criticized for being fatty. Here is a healthy dip with all the Asian flavours you want that can also be easily transformed into a sauce for your stir fries! I include a portion of cottage cheese for extra protein and to make it the ideal hearty snack. Allergic to peanuts? Simply replace the peanut butter with sesame butter (tahini) and the results will be just as delicious.
250 ml (1 cup)
125 ml (½ cup) cottage cheese
60 ml (¼ cup) reduced sodium soy sauce
30 ml (2 tbsp.) rice vinegar
30 ml (2 tbsp.) honey
30 ml (2 tbsp.) peanut butter
30 ml (2 tbsp.) grated fresh ginger
15 ml (1 tbsp.) mirin
15 ml (1 tbsp.) toasted sesame oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
Crushed peanuts (optional, for garnish)
''If you aren’t bothered by the texture of cottage cheese, you can skip the food processor. Just stir it all together with a spoon and save some of the washing up!''
1. In a food processor, combine all the ingredients except the water.
2. Blend until smooth. Add 15 ml (1 tbsp) of water at a time, as needed, to reach your desired consistency.
3. Enjoy with raw vegetables, spring rolls, chicken skewers or on a vegetable stir-fry.
