Perfect for entertaining, nibbling or eating for lunch at your desk, little mezze dips are a weekly staple in the BOSH! household. We’ve combined some newly discovered flavours a few classics; our Beetroot, Tahini & Dill Dip is incredible, and our Pea, Feta & Mint Dip
is an old favourite made plant-based. The mighty Muhammara takes the crown here, with its rich roasted pepper flavour, and for the full Levantine effect we’ve matched the dips with flatbreads, shop-bought dolmades and dippy veg. If you’re wanting to up your dip game and impress guests at your next party, these recipes are gonna help you out. You’ll definitely need a food processor here and, if you’re making them all, having a silicone spatula to hand would be very helpful to speed up the process.

Method

Remove the peas for the Pea, Feta & Mint Dip from the freezer and set aside to thaw slightly until needed.

Next, make the Beetroot, Tahini & Dill Dip:

Squeeze the lime juice into the food processor • Add the beetroot, tahini and a generous sprinkling of salt • Blitz until smooth • Check the seasoning and adjust if necessary • Scrape the dip into a serving bowl • Roughly chop the feathery fronds of the dill and sprinkle them over the dip along with the sesame seeds • Quickly rinse the food processor bowl and blade to use again.

Now make the Muhammara:

Squeeze the juice of the lemon half into the food processor • Add all the rest of the muhammara ingredients and blitz until smooth • Scrape into a serving bowl • Chop the walnuts and sprinkle them over the dip, then garnish with the parsley leaves • Quickly rinse the food processor bowl and blade to use again.

Assemble the Pea, Feta & Mint Dip

Squeeze the lemon juice into the food processor • Add the slightly thawed petit pois, feta, oil and mint leaves • Blitz until well combined, but still retaining some texture • Scrape into a serving bowl and swirl the top with the back of a spoon to make a small indent • Drizzle the olive oil into the dip and garnish with mint leaves.

Prepare the Crudités, Dolmades, Pickled Chillies & Flatbreads 

Toast the flatbreads under the hot grill for 1–2 minutes • Trim and slice the carrot, cucumber, fennel and celery into sticks or wedges for dipping • Rinse and halve the radishes, retaining their leaves • Arrange the vegetables on a platter, sprinkle over the dried mint and squeeze over a little lemon juice • Drain the pickled chillies and dolmades and transfer to small serving dishes.

Bring to the table with all the dips and let your guests tuck in!
