Fermented Dips And Crackers

dips gut health May 21, 2021
Let's make fermented Seed Pesto, Clean keto, gut-friendly dip.
This is dairy-free and nuts free, gentle on the stomach and easy to digest.
Homemade dips are the best, you can choose your ingredients, fresh, organic, pure, never feel guilty for indulging on amazing foods that are good for you and so satisfying with good quality fats!
This is a great dip to add to your dinner of slow-cooked lamb or lamb koftas. Or seriously just off the spoon ๐Ÿ˜†
But enjoy this with friends or family with some homemade seed crackers that are also nut-free and dairy-free.
That's what I'm doing this weekend. I hope you have an amazing weekend!

  • 400g Fermented Chickpeas
  • 1 1/2 Limes

  • 8-10 grinds of pepper
  • 4-6 tablespoons
  • MCT oil
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 2 Tablespoons Tahini


  • Throw all your ingredients into a food processor and mix well.
  • I always start with the minimum amount of oil, garlic and pepper and taste as I go and the texture is up to you. I used 6 tablespoons of MCT oil and left the dip thick.
  • Keep in the fridge for a week.
  • My kids love this dip, apparently, it tastes like "bought from the shop's dip" :)

Fermenting your Chickpeas:

  • 1 can organic cooked Chickpeas
  • Kultured Wellness Kefir
  • Filtered Water


  • You can cover your chickpeas in Kultured Wellness kefir if you would like these to ferment a bit quicker 12 hours, or
  • Use 1/4 Cup of KW Kefir and cover the chickpeas with filtered water and ferment for 24 hours.

Fermenting your Seeds (any seeds)

  • 1 Cup Sunflower Seeds or any you prefer
  • 1/4 Cup KW Coconut Kefir Water
  • Filtered Water


  • Add all your ingredients into your jar and ferment for 12-24 hours.
  • Make sure you add extra water at least an inch above the nuts or seeds.
  • This will allow for the swelling of the seeds.
  • Once you have finished fermenting them rinse them well in filtered water.
