Combines soft tastes of lemon with sun-dried tomato and a hint of chili. Whether you’re enjoying game night with your family, or preparing for lunches for the week, this layered dip is a perfect healthful way to increase your daily fiber and protein. Best part: no one will even suspect it’s good for them!

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat. Spread pine nuts evenly across sheet and bake for 9-10 minutes or until golden. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before using.
  2. Melt coconut oil in small frying pan on medium-high heat. Add garlic and onion and saute until translucent. Drop into blender.
  3. Add sun-dried tomato ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth. You may have to add an additional 2 tbsp of the sun-dried tomato water, depending on its thickness. I used 8 tbsp. Once mixture is smooth, set aside.
  4. To make the chili walnut dip, process all ingredients in a food processor until smooth.
  5. In a glass bowl, layer half of the sun dried tomato dip, followed with all of the chili dip, then spinach, and lastly another layer of sun-dried tomato.
  6. Serve with chips, crackers, or veggies.
