Vegan and Paleo Garlicky Cream Cheese With Mint

Last week I had a crazy idea. I wanted to eat a snack that wasn’t sweet.

Yes, I guess I’m getting old and boring.

But I had a vision. I had a dream. A dream of a fresh cucumber-based snack. Of course with some garlic in it. After all, what’s a snack without garlic?

I tell you what it is: not welcome in my kitchen.

So I basically wanted something like a tzatziki but in snack form. So I made this.

Vegan and Paleo Garlicky Cream Cheese With Mint

  • 4-5 mint leaves
  • 1 tbsp capers
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • water
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 tsp vinegar
  • some black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cumin (optional)
  • a cucumber

  1. I used my hand blender for this, might also work with a normal blender (mine is not that good I guess):
  2. Put capers, walnuts, sunflower seeds, lemon juice, vinegar and 4 tbsp water and blend together. If not smooth enough add more water. For me it took around 6-7 tbsp water.
  3. Add black pepper, garlic, mint, cumin (optional) and blend again.
  4. Slice the cucumber into slices (not too thick, not too thin) and top with a tsp of the dip.
  5. Enjoy!
