I want to give you some healthy choices to enjoy this Sunday,
Super Bowl Sunday.

We may or may not enjoy the game, since the 49er's sadly will not be there to root for, 
It's still a fun day to get together with friends and family and munch, and there is always the commercials to enjoy!

Here is what I will be making:

  Fresh Lemon Artichoke Dip
1 garlic clove, peeled
1 shallot, peeled
2 TB fresh lemon juice
1/2 c vegan mayonnaise
1 TB apple cider vinegar
1/3 C great northern beans
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp mustard
1/4 tsp fresh pepper
4 oz. can of chopped green chilies
2 1/2 C canned artichoke hearts, drained

With a food processor running, drop garlic clove and process until minced. Turn off processor, scrape down sides of bowl, add remaining ingredients except artichokes and process until well combined. Add artichokes and process briefly so that small chunks remain. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper.
Makes 3 Cups. Serve with Homemade Pita chips.

 Homemade Pita Chips (kind of)
 6-8  small pita pockets

Split each pita into 2 rounds , Place rough side up on cookie sheet. Pour olive oil into a small bowl. Use a pastry brush to spread the oil onto the pita rounds evenly. Sprinkle lightly with an all-purpose seasoning blend, Cut into small triangles and bake at 350 degrees for 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned. Baking time will vary according to the thickness of your pitas. Remove from oven, cool and serve.

I will post more recipes during the week to help you... get ready for Sunday.
A main dish and dessert too!
Stay tuned.

Thursday is LADIES DAY at the Quarry.
