I’ve been looking for healthier, plant-based snacks to have around the house while working from home, as well as to share with friends now that we can socialize again. Cauliflower in particular seems like a good option, since it’s chock full of vitamins and nutrients, has tons of fiber, and is low in calories. This delicious dip is as easy as chopping and roasting veggies, and then blitzing them in the food processor, and lets you snack and still feel good about yourself.
I was drawn to this bean-based dip thinking it would be healthy, but realized how decadent it was after liberally brushing the crostini in butter and blending the copious amounts of olive oil and grated cheese into the dip. I’ll try to lighted it the next time I make it, but for now just consider it a luxury.
Guy loves his cooking magazines, and recently picked up a copy of a Better Homes and Gardens’ One-Pan Recipes in the check-out lane. The cover of the magazine featured this pan of ham and cheese melts, made with Hawaiian rolls, brushed with melted butter, chopped shallots, parsley, and garlic, and browned until melty and delicious. We made them for a weeknight dinner and then spotted them at the book club holiday party – they’re really great for any occasion.
