Patata (Greek Garlic & Potato Dip)

25 Aug

Before going vegan, I’d always enjoy this delicious dip called Patata served at one of the local Lebanese / Mediterranean restaurants. Unfortunately it wasn’t until recently that I found out they put sour cream in it. So, needless to say I veganized it so that I can enjoy it once again! Patata is delicious with pita bread, crackers and vegetables. It’s also tasty on greek-inspired sandwiches and wraps.

Patata (Greek Garlic & Potato Dip)

1 russet potato
3/4 cup imitation sour cream
1/3 cup olive oil
2 medium-large cloves roasted garlic
1-1/2 teaspoons dried dill
1 – 1-1/4 teaspoons garlic salt
4-6 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk

Peel and cut potato into 1-inch pieces. Place in a medium-size pot of water and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook potatoes for 15 minutes or until they are easily pierced with a fork. Drain, and rinse with cold water. Place in a deep bowl and blend with sour cream, olive oil, garlic, dill and garlic salt until thoroughly combined and creamy. Add almond milk 2 tablespoons at a time until desired consistency is reached, then beat for another minute or until light and fluffy.

TIP: Roast garlic by leaving in its skin and slicing off the tips. Drizzle with olive oil, wrap in foil and bake at 350º F for approximately 15 minutes, or until garlic becomes fragrant.
