Chicory Spears with Turmeric Tahini Dip





Tired of carrots and hummus, I am. Try this ‘no blender required’ dip with all the benefits of turmeric and its sunshine colour/ nutrients packed in. Perfect with Chicory dipped in but feel free to use any crudités you fancy!


1. Arrange the chicory leaves on a platter.
2. Whisk the tahini yoghurt ingredients together until smooth, taste for seasoning then serve with a drizzle of olive oil. Serve in a bowl and dip away!


  • 250ml full fat natural yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp light tahini
  • 1 fat garlic clove, finely chopped
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • Drizzle extra virgin olive
  • Sea salt & pepper
  • 2 bulbs chicory, tough end chopped off and leaves separated
