Veggie Dip


Welcome to Family Friendly Friday!  Today my two chefs are my twin daughters, Aubree and Brynn.  This recipe is so simple, I didn’t even have to help them!  Now was there a mess?  Yes! :)  But isn’t that part of the fun?  My girls sure think it is.  I am so thankful that my twins are not my picky eaters.  They love veggies and always ask me for some “veggie dip”!  So this is our recipe, we hope you enjoy it!

Measure out 1 cup of full fat greek yogurt or organic raw yogurt (see recipe)  into a medium bowl.

Place Yogurt In Bowl


Add 2 tablespoons of sour cream or raw sour cream (See Recipe) to the bowl.

Sour Cream


Add 1/4 tsp garlic salt, 1/4 tsp onion powder, and 1/4 tsp unrefined sea salt to the bowl.

Add Spices


Now add 1/8 tsp pepper, 1/8 tsp paprika, 1/8 tsp celery seeds, and 1/8 tsp dill weed.  (How cute is Aubree writing her first initial in the salt, always learning!)

Add Remaining Spices


Now stir together until well blended.

Stir Together Well


Allow the dip to marinate for several hours or overnight.  Place the dip in a serving dish and serve with some fresh vegetables.

Yummy Dip

       @The21stCenturyHousewife My girls love to cook and I can’t think of a better gift to give them then teaching them at a young age how to cook and how to cook with wholesome healthy ingredients.  Thanks for the great blog hop, I enjoy it every week!

    Yum. What a lovely dip. Its so great to see your kids involved in the process. Brilliant.

  12. Jan Martin Whitlinger says:

    Learned something new today–thanks, Halle! At Christmas, we make both male and female fudge!

  13. Kathy Hughes says:

    I love this!!! Thank you!

  14. Jessica Bennett Espinoza says:

    I don’t think this is accurate. I thought it was really cool and then I asked some master gardeners and they said it’s not true …

  15. Larian LeQuella says:

    You are correct Jessica, this is absolutely false. Even if the male/female thing wasn’t a load of poppycock, even the correlation to taste based on bumps is incorrect: Long story short bell pepper lobe number doesn’t affect taste, but positively correlates with number of branches of plant and length of the harvest (i.e. the more branches or the longer the harvest period, the more the lobes). That’s about it. Feel free to buy any shaped bell peppers you want. :)

  16. Sylvia Waters says:

    No such thing as male and female peppers!!!!!

  17. Stuart Pierce says:

    According to
    Question. I was just told today that when choosing bell peppers I should look for one with four bumps on the bottom because it is a “female” pepper and thus will be sweeter. The “male” pepper has only three bumps. Is this factual???
    Answer. Peppers have complete flowers, that is both male and female parts in the same flower. *
    Male and female fruit can only come from plant types that have separate male and female flowers, and with a few exceptions, only the female flowers produce fruit. (one of the exceptions – some papaya male flowers will set fruit).
    The number of lobes is related to the specific variety of pepper. There are varieties of peppers that produce 2, 3-4, or 3-5 lobed peppers. The 4 lobed ‘bell’ pepper was (and is) more popular in the U.S., so plants have been breed for this characteristic.
    * (Pepper trees [black & white pepper] have separate male and female flowers).

  18. Nancy Cloonan says:

    :) thanks! Love peppers! Now I can choose them more carefully!

  19. Addie Dupre Old says:

    False. It has nothing to do with sweetness. It is a marketing variety. Read above link by Stuart.

  20. Tessa Williams Simpson says:

    How cool, I will have to take notice to see if I can tell a difference!
