BUCKWHEAT/FLAX SEEDS SPICY CRACKERS with GRILLED GOLDEN BEET DIP/HUMMUS
I am not Vegan.
I eat gluten in some form every day.
Healthy food habits…not all the time.
We do go sometimes Vegan for a week, just to see how it feels. Being a South Indian, rice is a huge part of our daily meals, we naturally follow a gluten free diet to a certain extent.
Now about eating and following a healthy lifestyle, wish I was more consistent with it. We eat quite healthy, actually very healthy, but after a good healthy meal, we go out for Gelato:). My new favorite flavor FicoPistachio, oh yum.
OK, I don’t eat ice cream everyday, but I need a sweet something after dinner time. Do you crave a dessert after your dinner?
Another thing we love after dinner, especially during weekends is music. The guitar comes out, karaoke mike turned on, fighting over who goes first with their choice is usually a scene on a Friday night. It’s so much fun that we started our monthly karaoke get together with some friends who enjoy singing. Well some of us do sound like Cameron Diaz(including me) from ‘MY BEST FRIEND’S WEDDING’, but hey, we have fun. Do you think you sound different during karaoke?,I definitely think I do.
This month for our karaoke meet I got to make these crackers and dip. After some unsuccessful guesses as to what went into the dip, they couldn’t believe it was Golden Beets and loved how light and good it was. Served it with Roquefort and goat cheese coated with pistachios and drizzled with pineapple marmalade. A good evening it was.
The crackers are crispy and spicy and they go perfect with the dip which is light and tasty.Of course, I haven’t given up on my chips and salsa, but I love this combination too. In fact this dip makes for a very good sauce for pasta, so double whammy there right..?
Here goes the gluten free, vegan and very easy crackers and a healthy dip to go along.
Have a great week and thank you so much for your kind words on my previous post. I truly appreciate your comments, I feel more inspired and motivated by your kind words.
