Walnut-'Yogurt' Dip (Akhrot Ka Raita)

As promised, here’s a full recipe idea for how to use yesterday’s soy yogurt cheese. This is a variation on an Indian raita (a yogurt-based condiment) featuring walnuts (akhrot). It comes together really quickly, and is incredibly versatile! With pita wedges, it’s a great appetizer. Use it to dip strawberries in for breakfast, or pineapple in for dessert. Be creative!

Simply combine one cup Yogurt Cheese (see yesterday’s recipe) with 1/3 cup coarsely chopped walnuts, 2 tablespoons organic brown sugar, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Sprinkle the top with 1/4 tsp. whole cumin seeds and a dash of crushed red pepper, then garnish with thin slices from 12 green grapes.

Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes before serving.


walnuts $4.99

brown sugar $3.39

grapes $3.84
