Baba Ghanooj Trio Dip for the Super Bowl

1 Comment 01 December 2010

“Hi Marlene, With the Superbowl coming up I was thinking of a different dip that I could serve, that would be tasty and also healthier……I came up with a Baba Ghanooj Trio….traditional baba ghanooj, roasted red pepper baba ghanooj and kalamata olive baba ghanooj served with Za’atar pita toasts….the colors look so pretty when served together!”

Thank you Joy Betesh for this great recipe!

Healthy Kosher Chips and Dips for Super Bowl Sunday

3 Comments 01 December 2010

It’s that time of year again – when the whole family will gather around the TV Sunday afternoon – half to watch the game and half to watch the commercials. And while everyone has their own reasons for watching the Superbowl – they will all be in agreement about the need for great snacks. Whether you serve a full-course meal or a few things to nibble on, chips and dips are a Superbowl snacking essential. Here are some great kosher chips and dips that are exciting and different – when you get bored of the classic tortilla chips and salsa.

Baked Lentil Chips – in two different varieties – sea salt and cracked pepper and cucumber dill – these chips are totally gluten free and full of good things like fiber and protein.

Yummy-made out of lentils, adzuki and garbanzo beans!

Rice Works Whole grain Snacks – these crispy treats come in six delicious flavors – sea salt, sweet chili, salsa fresca, baked cinnamon, parmesan and tangy bbq – to satisfy the sweet and salty tooth in every member of your family. Plus they’re low fat, so you won’t feel guilty about your indulgence.

Sabra Red Pepper Hummus - there’s a reason Sabra hummus has the biggest share of the hummus market – it is just finger lickin’ good! Their red pepper variety is always a solid choice, or try the plain for a safe bet – or any of their other types!

Sonny and Joe’s Matbucha – this traditional Sephardic dish is just tomatoes and peppers cooked down and seasoned and spiced to perfection. When you don’t have the time to make your own, just pick up some from Sonny and Joe’s – a local New York company that started on the Lower East Side!
