Spinach kale yogurt dip is a healthy snack for any occasion. Homemade whole grain crackers are a perfect crunchy pairing for the warm vegetable dip!
Dip baby dip! The words that I hear when I’m at a game day party, or hanging out with the family on Sunday. I have to admit, eating snacks is probably my favorite thing about watching sports. But you know how it goes, 20 cheesy chip dunks later, your left feeling stuffed and uncomfortable.
I had to think of a solution quick!
This healthier, low fat, warm and tasty spinach kale yogurt dip will satisfy your cravings and get your vegetables in for the day! If you want to go the extra mile, you won’t believe how simple and quick it is to make your own whole grain crackers.
Score a food touchdown with this better for you dip and cracker combo!
This spinach kale yogurt dip is packed with healthy ingredients, fresh herbs and aromatics. The nonfat plain Greek yogurt is super creamy, has just the right amount of tang and is loaded with protein.
You can pull everything together in 15 minutes or less, and have a sexy hot dip ready to go for your guests. No sweat required!
If you love baking, then these whole grain crackers are especially for you! It’s so easy to pull together. I used whole wheat flour, but you can substitute any kind you prefer; all-purpose, white whole wheat or gluten free.
You can literally mix, roll and bake in under an hour, probably even faster! The sesame, poppy and whole flaxseeds add extra texture and flavor. I like to sprinkle kosher salt on top for a hint of savory.
I found that the thinner you roll the dough, the better! It makes a more crunchy, tastier cracker, go thinner than you think you should.
I’m so ready to take a big scoopful of this savory, cheesy dip without the guilt! I like to serve this dip with a big bowl of pork chili and whole grain jalapeno cheddar cornbread for a complete meal.
These crackers are too gorgeous! The first time I made them, I actually could not believe that they were baked from scratch. I did this? Alright, high five mom!
The texture reminds of thicker pita chips, just right for the hearty spinach kale dip.
Looking for more ways to dip? You can slice fresh cucumbers, carrots or bell peppers. Whole grain rustic bread or crostini are also a lovely edible spoon. Enjoy those kicked back, relaxing, well deserved weekends friend!
What are whole grains?
You know that they are healthier for you, but what are they? The definition from the Whole Grains Council is as follows; Whole grains or foods made from them contain all the essential parts and naturally-occurring nutrients of the entire grain seed in their original proportions. If the grain has been processed (e.g., cracked, crushed, rolled, extruded, and/or cooked), the food product should deliver the same rich balance of nutrients that are found in the original grain seed. Some typical examples includes amaranth, barley, buckwheat, corn, millet, oats, quinoa, brown rice, rye, sorghum, teff, triticale, wheat, spelt, farro and wild rice. This recipe contains whole wheat flour, which is a whole grain because 100% of the bran, germ, and endosperm are still in the flour.
