Chunky Bean Spread

Delicious on fresh whole-grain or rye bread, you can use leftovers of this tasty spread as a dip for tortilla chips. If using as a dip, thin the consistency with a bit of water if necessary.

learned a new trick on FoodTV for getting the “guts” out of the eggplant. When it cooled slightly, wrapped it up in plastic wrap (open on the stem end). Cut the stem off, inverted the eggplant over the bowl and squeezed the pulp out and rolled up the plastic-covered skin like a toothpaste tube.

Tofu Dips

Hints: For a spicy dip, use Taco Seasoning Mix made by Bearitos or Hain. For a delicious French Onion Dip, use the one made by Simply Organic. Simply Organic makes a delicious Dill Dip also, as well as several others, including a Southwest Taco. Other packaged mixes may be available in your local natural food stores. Read the labels carefully for healthy ingredients with no added oils or animal products.
