Posted on

Watch the video for step-by-step instructions to make this deliciously filling breakfast or brunch (or even “linner” or “dunch”):

This wrap is a great way to get a mix of veggies in your breakfast and the flavours really come together with the taste of Spinach Dip (that’s why it’s super)!

1/4 cup feta cheese

2 whole grain tortillas

1 small roma tomato (optional)

1 small persian cucumber (optional)

Sprinkle Garlicky Dill Topper

Method

  1. Mix Spinach Dip Mix, plain yogurt (both should be 1 Tablespoon, the TSP’s in the video are an error) and eggs in a small bowl and let sit to rehydrate the spices

Kitchen Hack: Use a ceramic knife to prevent onion tears

I love the flavour that the Spinach Dip Mix adds, because though I enjoy full-on Spinach Dip in the classic sourdough bread bowl at get-togethers, I’m always finding ways to use it for everyday cooking. Check out more great recipes:

I also appreciate that there is no added salt (hence low sodium) and the inclusion of nutritional yeast for all those great B vitamins! You could also add some Kalamata Olives for a bit more salt. What are your favourite flavours to pair with spinach?

Video: Guacamole Giddiness

Posted on

I have not always been an avocado fan, in fact I would have to describe myself as anti-avocado in the past. My family would enjoy “alligator pears” with just a spoon and a smile while I gagged in the background. It was mostly a texture thing, I refused to eat salads that were slimed with ripe avocado or swampy looking guacamole. I started to tolerate small touches of avocado in sushi rolls, but only after scraping off any brown bits. After that slippery slope, I began sliding my tortilla chips into seven layer dip, trying to keep the green goo to a minimum. I finally leapt in and became an avocado convert after my talented husband, Exec Chef, made a chunky tomato heavy guacamole at home. I’d always known guacamole as greenish sludge that sat there limply until it turned brown and crusty. When I changed my perception and saw it more as a relative of salsa, which I eat by the sombrero full, it became a lot more appealing. Once that first batch ran out, I dared to make my own. I tweaked and seasoned until it tantalized my taste buds and then proceeded to demolish the entire bowl on my own. Since then I have hoarded avocados, impatiently waiting for them to ripen and then concocting bright fresh gloriously green guacamole!

Recipe: Chunky Guacamole

Serves: me

Ingredients:

3 ripe avocados

1/2 small red onion

2 small tomatoes

2 limes (more if they are dry)

1 medium jalapeño

1/2 bunch of cilantro

salt & pepper to taste

Method:

Cut the limes in half and squeeze the juice into a bowl.

Cut the avocados in half and remove the pit. You can scoop out the flesh, but I like to peel them.

Chop up the avocado and add it to the lime juice.

Dice the tomatoes and mix with the avocados and lime juice.

Using a rubber glove (or a latex glove) on your non-knife holding hand, dice the jalapeño and add it to the bowl. Most of the heat is in the seeds, so leave some in if you like it spicy.

Finely dice the onion and toss it in the bowl.

Chop the cilantro roughly and add it to the bowl.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with tortilla chips.

Happy Cinco De Mayo!
