by Shirley Erasmus

For students, the beginning of the year is an exciting time! You’re going to be catching up with friends, or meeting and making new friends. Whether you’re in a digs, or in a residence having a few fail-safe recipes to fall back on will always come in handy.

So, how about we start with something simple? Time to crack open a packet of chips, and whip up some of these simple recipes for two-ingredient dips.

Holy Guacamole!

This could really not be any simpler.


  • Mashed avocado
  • Greek yoghurt


Mix equal parts plain Greek yogurt and mashed avocado. Season with salt, garlic or other spices to taste.

Yo Besto Pesto (100% Vegan)


  • 3 TBS Olive Oil
  • 4 cups fresh Basil


Mix 4 cups basil with 3 tablespoons olive oil in a food processor until combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  • No food processor? Put some elbow grit into it! Hand mashed basil mixed with olive oil, makes for a rustic and delicious pesto.

Whiskey Business Marinade (100% Vegan)


  • Whiskey
  • Balsamic Vinegar


Mix equal parts whiskey and balsamic vinegar and marinate meat for at least 30 minutes.

  • Vegan? Why not use this marinade to marinate tofu?



  • 1 cup Sweet Chilli Sauce
  • 4 tsp peanut butter (crunchy, smooth – it’s your choice)


Mix ingredients together, and pour over 2-minute noodles.

Mustar(d) up the Courage


  • Mayo, or Greek Yoghurt
  • Dijon Mustard, or spicy brown mustard.


Mix 2 parts mayo or Greek yogurt with 1 part Dijon or spicy brown mustard. This is great as a dip for fresh veggies (for the health nut’s around), or as a salad dressing and/or cracker spread.

There we have it – five easy go-to dip recipes for when all your mates come around!

PS. Don’t try to pretend that you’re not going to lick the bowls out when your friends leave.
