homemade secret vegetable salsa.


A homemade salsa recipe made with secret vegetables - perfect for tricking those fussy eaters! Featuring a medley of fresh tomatoes, carrot, red pepper and coriander with a chilly kick, this mouthwatering dip is great for turning around those veggie haters. Chips of course are a little bit naughty, but it's nice to know that the dip you're plunging into is full of goodness.

I'm now excited to be part of the Froothie community, and as a brand ambassador I've been giving the Optimum G.21 Platinum Series Blender a whirl. There's just so much you can do with it, so I'm excited to share some recipes I create along the way! From smoothies to nut butters and juices to dips, as well as soups, spreads and ice cream, I can't wait to get started. They retail at RRP £599 although at the moment are on offer at £429. With further ado, on to the recipe... 


Shopping list. 
(Makes a generous dip bowl amount!)
♥ Three salad tomatoes
♥ One red pepper
♥ One carrot
♥ Handful of fresh coriander, plus extra to garnish
♥ 2 tsp paprika
♥ 1 tsp cayenne pepper
♥ 1 tsp chill flakes
♥ 1/2 tsp sugar
♥ Salt and pepper to taste

Step one. Simply whizz together all the ingredients except the flesh of one tomato.

Step two. If you light a slightly chunky dip, chop up the remaining tomato and stir through.

This is so that the carrot and red pepper are well and truly hidden but since the blender is so powerful you might want to add a little subtle texture back in. It really does make amazingly smooth drips!

Step three. Season to taste and garnish with chopped coriander. Don't forget the tortilla chips!

  1. This looks so good! I love adding salsa to my chilli bowls, but never make it myself. Got to try this soon.

  3. Such a clever idea to hide those veggies, and also make the most of adding an extra tomato at the end so you still have a salsa texture. I love my froothie, but everything sometimes becomes too super smooth!

  4. Great recipe, Emily. I love tortilla chips and dips, this sounds really simple to make with the Froothie blender.
