Very Nutty Walnut And Almond Dip

Having friends over again today. Thought I’ll make some dips for them since they would have had a heavy meal at a wedding lunch right before they come to my place.


  • Bread: 2 slices, crusts removed, quartered
  • Milk: 120ml
  • Shelled walnut: 200g
  • Ground almond: 100g
  • Extra virgin olive oil: 100ml
  • Lemon: 1, juiced
  • Salt: to taste
  • Ground black pepper: to taste
  • Paprika: for dusting
  • Parsley: 1 stalk, chopped


  1. Soak bread slices in milk for 5mins.
  2. Process bread with 150g walnuts till a coarse paste forms.
  3. Add in almond, oil, lemon juice and process till just mixed.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Crush the rest of the walnuts with fingertips. Mix half of it into dip.
  6. Transfer dip into serving bowl. Garnish with the remaining walnuts, paprika and parsley.
  7. Serve with corn chips or tortilla chips.


  • Do not process the nuts into a fine paste. Let it remain coarse so as to enhance the texture of the dip.
  • If you’d like to, squeeze a bit more lemon juice and drizzle a bit more oil onto dip before serving. I’m sure Jamie Oliver would have done that for his show.


  • This recipe was adapted from the recipe book ‘The Complete Book of Party Food and Appetizers‘.
