There are certain foods I am certain my child would live on for all of eternity if I let her. Sour Cream and Onion Potato chips is one of them. We have her grandmother to thank for that. I am not opposed to a little junk food in moderation. But I am opposed to junk that’s marketed as food. So I came up with a decent substitute that requires only 5 ingredients. They may not be chips, but they surely are delicious.
What You’ll Need–
1 can chickpeas
1 TSP olive oil
1 TBSP sour cream
a sprinkle of onion powder
a dash of Italian spices
Drain, rinse and dry your can of chickpeas. Pour them into a bowl and mix in all the other ingredients. Put them in a preheated 400 degree oven for 30 minutes, stirring halfway. Let cool and enjoy!
I have a confession. I don’t know how to cook appropriate portions. When I cook a pasta dinner for four, it usually turns into a pasta dinner for forty. It’s the same thing with weekly batches of quinoa and lentils. Here I am at the end of another week and I have a surplus of both. I’ve already made lentil loaves, quinoa burgers, eaten them as sides. What to do with all that leftover quinoa? Turn it into granola bars, of course!
Avocado = Amazing. Seriously. They promote heart health, have anti inflammatory benefits, and provide lots of key vitamins like B6, K, C, and E.
My current favorite way to eat them is as a dip for pretzels. This would also be tasty spread on toast of your choice. I mash an avocado, add 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast, a bit of crushed red pepper, and a few drops of lime juice.
