Tis the season of eating, which can be tricky for those with dietary restrictions or anyone trying to eat more clean or more healthy this time of year.
Family-owned snack brand RW Garcia offers several lines of artisan chips and crackers that have a clean ingredient deck, are Non-GMO Project Verified and certified gluten-free, giving everyone peace of mind to eat freely and enjoy. Hosting a party this holiday season? Keep a box in your cupboard just in case or, if you will be a guest at someone else’s party, do as I do and bring a box to any holiday party and know there’s safe, healthy food on the table.
The brand’s 3-Seed Cracker varieties include Harvest, Kale, Sweet Beet and Sweet Potato, which are deliciously crunchy, beautifully bright and great either on their own or paired with dips and spreads. These crackers are a delicious alternative to traditional crackers, combing healthy ingredients and great taste.
Jeremy and I are hosting a new year’s party this year, still a few months away, and I was testing some recipes with him over the weekend. If you are looking for something that is simple, yet flavorful and impressive, than I think you will enjoy this.
Simply top a Sweet Beet cracker with a thin slice of avocado and smoked salmon. Sprinkle with a little dill or top with scallions.
Two additional recipes that are super easy to make and will surely wow your guests are:
Holiday Cracker Appetizer
Sliced Manchego cheese
A pinch of lime zest
Top the cracker with the slice of cheese, add a small dollop of fig spread and top with a pinch of lime zest.
Nacho Apple Cheese Salsa
1 small apple, chopped
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 habanero pepper, finely diced
¼ cup sharp cheddar cheese, chopped
¼ cup chopped cilantro
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Top each cracker with a tablespoon of the mixture and top with a piece of cilantro.
