Snacks

These snacks are made quickly and can be eaten throughout the day:

Avocado on Toast

  • 1 slice of oven-baked bread per person
    (spelt bread is nice)
  • 1/2 avocado per serve
  • 1 dash tabasco sauce (optional)
  • Sea salt
  • Cracked black pepper

Toast bread, slice avocado neatly and place on toast, season with sea salt & cracked black pepper.
Variation: Serve avocado on rice cakes.

 

Guacamole (Avocado dip)

  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled and stones removed
  • 1 ripe tomato, chopped (optional)
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon coriander and/or parsley, chopped
  • Cracked black pepper to taste
  • Chilli or tabasco sauce to taste (optional)
Mash avocado and combine with tomato, garlic, onion and herbs. Season with cracked pepper and a few drops of chilli or tabasco sauce. You may add a little lemon juice to prevent the avocado from oxidising too quickly.
Serve with rice chips and crudite veggies (fresh baby carrots, celery sticks, crunchy lettuce leaves, raw broccoli, radishes, etc.).

The following 2 recipes were sent by Sonja Forsberg. Thank you Sonja.

Pita chips ( with sour cream)

My son loves them for eating at the cinema (minus the sour cream) while other kids are eating popcorn.

Brush oil over 2 large rounds of Lebanese/turkish Pita bread (no preservatives) and lightly salt. Sprinkle dried garlic or even rub with half a garlic clove. Pita is quite high in salt when it is made so this is of course optional. Then cut the rounds into corn chip sized triangles and bake in a hot oven for 10 minutes. Keep in an airtight container when cooled.

 

Cheesey Bowties

Grate a little cheese between two pieces of frozen pastry. When thawed, cut the pastry into ribbons and then quarters. Take each piece and twist a couple of times in the middle. The high fat content in the pastry makes them a very filling snack and limits the amount of cheese intake to a minimum. These also take around 10 minutes in a hot oven.
