This Scallion & Chili Yogurt Dip is packed with flavor but only takes 10 minutes and a handful of ingredients. You're going to start making this every time you gather with friends. It's gonna be awesome.
We live in an era of sanitary, hermetically sealed individual servings. I often wonder if our ancestors would even recognize some of the things we eat as food. They'd see a tiny plastic pot of artificially flavored yogurt as something astonishing but probably unnecessary. And I say this with no judgment. I enjoy many of these foods myself. But it couldn't be more different from the way people used to eat.
And of course, there are still many cultures around the world today that take a much more communal approach to food, even still eating with their hands and using bread as their only utensil. While the modern, Western part of me squirms at the possibility of harmful microorganism, there's a deeper part of me that's curious about the kind of energetic exchange that can happen around a dish of shared food. It's probably too romantic to say this is why I love dip so much. Nonetheless, I do love sharing a delicious dip with friends. The collective unconscious is super weird.
What makes this Scallion Chili Yogurt Dip so awesome?
This particular dip is a bit of a departure for me as it's not gooey and loaded with cheese. So if you're more of a light and fresh dip kind of person, this is perfect for you. It's made with super thick Greek yogurt or Skyr. If you live in a place where you can get labneh, I hear that's also awesome. There's also fried scallion and chili-infused olive oil. The combination of heat, freshness, and acidity is a serious flavor explosion.
You can serve this with soft flatbreads, crunchy tortilla chips, or crisp raw vegetables. I think peppery radishes or bright bell peppers would be awesome. Simply pop the bowl in the middle of the table, spread out some dippables, and go to town. To balance the communal aspect with the desire to keep all our microbes to ourselves, make the things you're going to dip bite-size. This way, no one's tempted to double dip.
Magical Properties of Scallions
Scallions, also known as green onions, will carry the same magical properties as onions in general. However, I think you can make slight energetic distinctions. Scallions are smaller and more mild, so use them in spells where you want the fiery Mars energy to be a bit more contained or subtle. When calling in protection, fertility or passion, use scallions in place of larger onions, especially if you're starting something new, as these alliums sprout in Spring. Also, scallions are extremely easy to regrow, even from kitchen scraps. I think you could call on them for a boost of resilience for long-lasting spells.
