Everyone will love this healthy, delicious salsa style dip made with tomatoes and seasoned with a home made spice mix. What’s not to love?!
I’m a sucker for a dip and a healthy one at that. This is so easy to prepare that I don’t even use the Thermomix, just a few minutes on the stove and this spicy, tomato dip is good to go. I love that it takes mere minutes to make and uses just a handful of every day ingredients. Plus if you’re following the Weight Watchers or Slimming World plans, this dip is free!
Talking of special diets, if you whip up this homemade Cajun seasoning and skip the salt, you can devour this dip on the low iodine diet too! How good is that? Of course, if you’re watching your weight and your iodine intake, skip the chips and dip in with your favourite veggies instead.
There’s more seasoning than you need here, so store the left overs and use it for bringing some Cajun flavour to other dishes! Nom nom!
