Sumac-Infused Leek Dip

I have recently created this recipe and have served this delicious dip on home made gluten free crackers. You can also use toasted bread or store bought crackers and it will be just as delicious. Another idea is to combine the dip with a lentil salad or roasted veggies. This leek dip has a warm and velvety flavour, and I'm confident that once you've made it, this dip will quickly become a favourite that you'll find yourself making over and over again!

This leek dip has a warm and velvety flavour thanks to the refined taste of sumac.

Sumac-Infused Leek Dip - one portion 

3 medium sized leeks, finely sliced and rinsed well

2 to 3 tbsp olive oil

5 dates, finely sliced 

2 to 3 tbsp tahini

2 tsp sumac 

Salt & pepper

1/2 lemon, juiced

Add the oil to a frying pan on medium heat, add the leeks, a pinch of salt and pepper and the sumac, 5 minutes with a lid.

Turn the heat down and fry for another 5 minutes, stirring frequently, but keep the lid on in between stirring.

Add the dates, fry for another 3 more minutes on low heat and stir once or twice.

Use the food processor for this next step. Add the warm leeks and dates to the food processor and add the tahini and the lemon juice and blend into a smooth paste.
