Kale Chips, Pates, and Spreads – All Raw

We continued our foray into raw food by making some raw sauces and dips.

It’s common for people to look for creamy and/or cheesy dips and spreads when they are at a social function – the fats and umami flavors of cheese garner a lot of desire, it seems. The dips and spreads we made were designed to mimic those flavors, as well as other familiar dishes such as cheese spread, hummus, and ketchup.

Below: Spiced cheese spread on crudites. The cheese flavor was very good on this dish.
