Frequently Asked Questions about Carrot Dip with Chilis:
- What if I don’t have garlic infused olive oil? That’s okay! Unless you are following a SIBO diet you can just substitute regular olive oil and one minced clove of garlic.
- What if I can’t eat cashews? To be honest I haven’t tried any other variations of this recipe. It might work with sunflower seeds but I haven’t tested it myself so if you do please let us know how it turns out!
- Where do I find crushed chili peppers? I get mine in the asian or oriental section of my grocery store.
- Why do you recommend soaking and dehydrating the cashews first? I recommend soaking and dehydrating ALL nuts and seeds before eating them. I wrote an entire post about why this is so important which you can read here.
