OK – So if your snout has not dipped into the gluten free skordalia trough of heaven - skadaddle! The Greeks really were Gods!
Do yourself a favour and partake of this simple rustic gluten free vegan dip inspired by the fabulous spud. As anyone will happily agree -- a spud is never a dud; and these mashed spuds are simple and sublime; a pre-requisite for any self respecting healthy blender recipe. There are a ton of fantastic skordalia recipes out there. A lot of them use crusty bread, which is of course, a recipe for disaster for those of us snouting in the gluten free trough. I like this simple easy alternative gluten free skordalia that uses raw almonds.
My snout first fell in love with skordalia when I was dining in a cafe in Henley Beach in Adelaide about 15 years ago. They had the most interesting, diverse selection of vegan dips on offer. Skordalia was one of the stars, that has since graced the plates at many a happy blender dinner. It just doesn’t get any simpler or more delicious than this gluten free skordalia recipe. And you know how much I love rustic peasant food. If you are looking for fantastic gluten free vegan dips and alllergy free recipes this skordalia recipe is a winner! It is gluten free, dairy free, egg free and soy free. This is one of those quick easy food processor recipes you will be making again and again for your family.
This gluten free skordalia recipe is extremely versatile. It is fantastic spread on grilled vegetable kebabs; wonderful as a paste spread for tofu; and delicious served with crusty gluten free bread. It is also a sensational healthier dairy free vegan alternative to the standard creamy mashed potatoes. If you are serving this gluten free skordalia as a vegan dip or paste you can afford a richer taste as you will only be eating a little. But if you are serving this skordalia recipe as a vegetable side, a milder taste might be more appropriate, as this can be very over bearing if you are too heavy handed with the garlic.
Great for warding off the vampires -- not so great for your social life! But if you and your friends all have your snouts in the rich garlic trough you won’t smell a thing. The garlic gods were smart weren’t they?
