Asparagus and Cheese Dip
By Chef Lippe
For those moms who can’t get their kids to eat health food this this great dip made with fresh Asparagus, goat cheese and almonds. Just like green eggs and ham…green cheese and pasta. Serve over a colorful pasta or with vegetable sticks.
1 bunch of asparagus, cut into pieces and cooked
2 cloves of garlic
¼ cup almonds toasted
1 cup parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon sonoma rub
1 pinch of garlic roasted sea salt
½ cup sour cream
½ cup goat cheese
Cook asparagus in boiling water until crisp-tender about 3 minutes. Remove asparagus from water and dry.
Once asparagus is cooled transfer to food processor, add garlic, almonds, cheeses, sonoma rub, salt and pepper and sour cream. Blend until pesto consistency.
This is a tasty creamy preparation that does well as a dip for parties or used as a topping in stead of pesto.
