Intrigued - Trader Joe's Masala Lentil Dip

  • 7

I just got my TJs flyer, I'm going to have to go check out this new dip they are advertising. I think it sounds really good. Anyone tried it yet, or have experience with a Masala dip?

  1. I just bought some yesterday; it's amazing. I'm going to try to figure out how to make my own, as I will require large quantities of it in the future! :-)

      1. One day I bought a bag of baby carrots not realizing I had more in the fridge. Too many carrots! I decided to make a carrot soup. In a large pot cooked onion, garlic. Added chicken stock/vegetable stock, carrots and theTJ's masala dip. Added more curry, paprika and other spices to taste.Blended. I like mine spicy enough that a dollop of yogurt was a great contrast. Quick and easy.

        1. Yep - it's awesome. I just finished a container and found a link to try making my own, because my boyfriend and I ate it so fast. Found one at http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe.... :)

            i haven't had the TJ's dip so i don't know how the spicing will compare, but this Marcus Samuelsson recipe is one of my favorites:

          2. I was very surprised by how good this tasted. At first I just used it as a veggie dip, then a sandwich spread but the other night I let a few chicken tenders marinade in the dip (I added a small dollup of greek yogurt to thin it out) and grilled them. DELISH!

            1. Got a tub of it and have been enjoying it very much this week! It's saltier than I'd make at home, but so is most packaged dip. I've been using it as a dip for celery, bell pepper, carrot, and cucumber sticks.
