Dip and dunk your way to a healthy lunch with this vegetarian keto appetizer. It’s smoky with a delicate kick without being too hot or overpowering complementing the creaminess of the cheese.

Serve with crudités or your favourite keto-friendly crackers like these Keto Cheesy Party Crackers, Keto Rosemary and Onion Crackers or even Keto Tortilla Chips. A delicious low carb dip to take to a BBQ or to enjoy with Keto nachos and your favourite box set. Friday nights don’t come better that this served with the latest episode of Billions. Are you a fan too?
