My Snacky Dinner
Recently, I got home from an exercise class and needed a quick meal. I’d cooked a full dinner the night before. I was pms-y and grumpy and just wanted something easy, so I got resourceful and ended up with a very quick, satisfying dinner.
I had a few ingredients in my fridge that needed to get eaten or they would go bad. I had intended to make brownies for a party that call for soy yogurt and tofu cream, but I couldn’t find the Sunspire grain sweetened chocolate chips I needed, so I was stuck with the soy yogurt (made by Whole Soy) and tofu cream cheese (made by Follow Your Heart). I also had a loaf of raisin bread from a friend who didn’t want to throw it away and a container of eggplant dip from Dean & Deluca. The eggplant dip wasn’t too exciting on its own, but it was going to go bad if I didn’t eat it, so…here’s what I did:
I toasted the raisin bread and spread it with cream cheese. Then, I spread the eggplant dip on top of the cream cheese raisin toast and made an open-face sandwich. It was delicious! For dessert, I had a childhood favorite of mine, yogurt with raisins. An easy, delicious snack, and I used up the ingredients I had on hand!
Side note: we need to bring Sunspire’s grain sweetened chocolate chips back!! What happened to them? Let’s start a campaign to bring them back!
Side note #2: I have yet to find a soy yogurt that is unsweetened or sweetened with brown rice syrup. Every soy yogurt I find is sweetened with agave, cane juice, or something else that isn’t superhero. If anyone knows of an unsweetened soy yogurt, please tell me in the comments below!
Side note #3: This is not superhero, but it was delicious! And crazy.
