Victoria Kubiak will show you how to create a colourful and nutritious orange sardine and carrot dip.
You can adapt this dip in certain ways, you can serve it with oatcakes and vegetables or take some rye bread or sourdough and toast it with the dip on top. In this video, Victoria puts spinach, basil, and tomatoes with the dip on toast to make a delicious and filling lunch.
You can use the dip on its own or as a condiment.
To make this dip, you will need:
- a can of sardines with their bones
- olive oil
- whole grain mustard
The ingredients in the dip may provide the following health benefits:
It is best to have sardines with their bones for this dip because you want to get the calcium from the bones. Sardines include incredibly important essential fatty acids, particularly the omega-3 which is an anti-inflammatory property.
Whole grain mustard
Whole grain mustard helps you with your digestive system and can be beneficial for your cholesterol levels.
Herbs and Spices
Embrace your herbs and spices and use them on a regular basis because they have so much to offer, not just nutrition, but also the way they smell and make you excited about your food.
Not only does basil add massive amounts of flavour, but it is also a really helpful digestive aid and can be anti-inflammatory and promote a healthy gut.
There is lots of research going into Turmeric and its anti-inflammatory properties which are very helpful for your digestive system. It can also be a powerful antioxidant.
