Here’s a creamy dip with a twist—instead of Ranch dressing or the usual cream cheese base, this versatile vegan creation is made with pea protein powder, raw ground cashews and a splash of lemon juice. Usually scooped into smoothies, pure pea powder is mild tasting and easy to digest, plus it packs in 7 grams of protein per tablespoon. So dunk your veggies, dip your chips or spread some on a sandwich—this is one condiment you can enjoy without a care!
