With the summer sunshine well and truly here, it’s the time of year for al fresco eating, picnics and BBQs – and A Little Bit’s range of dips are the perfect thing to have to hand. Although made for dipping, there’s so many more ways to enjoy our dips, and we’ve put together a few suggestions below.
Make a tasty tart. A great dip can make the perfect base for a tart, topped with your favourite ingredients. Simply top a sheet of puff pastry with seasonal veg – aubergines & peas with our Oregano & Aubergine dip is a favourite of ours.
Stir into a curry. Try using dip as a base for a curry sauce – works well for both vegan and meat curries.
Sandwich filler. This one’s pretty obvious but worth a mention! And it’s not just great in a traditional sandwich, why not try in a halloumi wrap or toasted pitta?
Pasta Sauce. Simply toss your favourite dip with your favourite type of pasta. We love our Mint, Pea, and Parsley Dip with rotini for a quick healthy lunch! Top tip: right after you’ve cooked and drain your pasta, put the pasta back in the pan, add your dip, and warm up gently on the hob.
Serve as a sauce or a slather. This is particularly great if you’re having a BBQ. Make kebabs with your favourite meat or veggies and finish with a slather of your favourite dip.
Pimp your jacket potato. A dollop of delicious dip is a great way to perk up a baked potato. To make it even better, add some roasted veggies and a scatter of shredded cheese! Use as a pizza topping. Who says pizza sauce needs to be made with tomatoes? Try using a tasty dip as your base instead, and feel free to get creative with the toppings.
Serve with rice and pulses. Dips are a great way to make grains and pulses more interesting. Use as a garnish or mix through.
Stir through risotto. Add a twist to any risotto recipe by stirring through a few generous dollops of your favourite dip. Our dips are particularly good for this as they add a dose of fresh herbs and veggies which can really make a risotto come alive!
Make bruschetta. Use your favourite dips to make beautiful bruschetta that are perfect to serve at dinner parties.
