Tis the season to be jolly! Christmas is about spending time with family, friends and appreciating the little things in life, yes this includes food! With so many Christmas parties, work lunches, dinners and more, I’m sure you’re all running out of ideas on what to bring. If you've driven yourself crazy looking at all the Christmas inspiration on Pinterest but don't quite have Nigella Lawson culinary skills we’ve got you covered with this guaranteed crowd pleaser. The best part? It’s very easy to whip up, taking less than 10 minutes to make! It’s also super versatile especially if there are dietary requirements.
We know cob loaf dips have been around for a while, and we can understand why, they’re so delicious and are the perfect option for large groups. To start, you’re going to need a cob loaf; If you’re wanting this to be a gluten-free dish, GF cob loafs are easy to find these days. Most bakeries or health food stores should stock gluten free bread options. Start by slicing the top of the loaf off, you’ll want to leave roughly a 2cm edge. You can either save the top of the loaf to place on top for decoration or cut it up into squares to enjoy with the dip. To create a hollow bowl, scoop out the bread in the middle, again you can save it for dipping.
Time for the main attraction! For our dip, we’re using our ever so tasty Morlife SuperDip Tangy Turmeric. Nothing can beat that feeling of indulging in something so tasty knowing that it’s good for you right? Well, you’ll definitely have that feeling when it comes to our SuperDip. Tangy Turmeric contains prebiotics, probiotics and chia seeds with ginger, turmeric and black pepper. Its flavour is super delicious, reminding us ever so slightly of French onion dip! Our SuperDip range is free from additives, are gluten-free and vegan (when mixed into vegan alternatives). We also have 2 other mouth-watering flavours in our SuperDip range which include; Smokey Barbeque and Spinach, Herb & Onion.
To make up the dip, we mixed 1 ½ packets with 500g of natural yoghurt in a medium bowl. Be sure to give it a good mix to ensure the mixture is well combined. For a vegan alternative, coconut yoghurt is a delicious substitute for dairy yoghurt. Likewise, hummus is a delicious vegan alternative if you are planning on using our Smokey Barbeque Dip. Once the contents are mixed well, you can spoon it into the cob loaf. With your leftover packet of SuperDip, store it in a ziplock bag and keep it handy in the pantry. It makes a perfect seasoning for meats and vegetables or as a curry spice- the possibilities are endless!
Serve your cob loaf with freshly cut vegetables, our suggestions; carrots, celery, cucumber and capsicum.
If you’re short on time, you can easily prepare the elements the night before or the morning of. When it’s time for your guests to arrive, simply spoon the dip into the cob loaf and you’re good to go!
