Three years ago, before I started blogging, I saw a video with the Spork girls on the VegNews Magazine website, and it became a dreamy, warm-fuzzy desire to some day create one of my own.

Well! I’m over the moon with utter joy that TODAY IS THAT DAY!

Enjoy this video made exclusively for VegNews TV:

This is a mostly-raw dish.  It does contain nutritional yeast which isn’t technically raw but has been embraced by the raw community. No matter, it’s 100% vegan and deeeeeeeeelicious.

(RAW VEGAN) PIZZA DIP

1 cup sun dried tomatoes
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds (shelled)
1/4 cup nutritional yeast (acts as a Parmesan cheese substitute; horrible name, delicious ingredient!)
1 clove garlic
2 Tbsp fresh Italian parsley
2 Tbsp fresh basil
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp salt

Put all ingredients in a food processor. Process until everything is mixed into a thick spread.

That’s all!

.      .      .      .      .

I swear this tastes like a delicious, fresh Margherita pizza. Plate and serve with bread or fresh veggies. People who usually don’t like veggies will eat them, if for no other reason then that they are merely a vehicle with which to get this spread into their mouths. YUM.

It may turn somewhat brown in color, which happens when you blend red and green. It’s natural. Embrace it. (Though it helps if you garnish with some leftover basil or parsley.)
