Loaded Greek Eggplant Dip is a low carb, Mediterranean style baba ganoush topped with kalamata olives, capers, and toasted pine nuts. It’s so easy to bake an eggplant, blend it in a food processor, chill, and serve it loaded with beautiful toppings!
Hatch chiles are in season! In celebration of my favorite season, I made this creamy vegan fire-roasted hatch chile spicy hummus. This is the ultimate appetizer for those who like it hot! And if you don’t like too much spice, you are in full control of the level of spice!
There were stretches in college when I practically lived off chips and salsa. Nowadays I go for a healthier version with this homemade healthy creamy chip dip. AKA – hold the cheese dip and the questionable contents of that happy hour bean dip.
A healthy new Poblano Avocado Dip for chips. Or veggies. Or both. Roasted poblano peppers, creamy avocado, and just a couple other ingredients blended up simply for a sultry delicious dairy-free, vegan dip full of happiness.
