Beyond Vegetable Dip

Posted May 10 2011 11:23am

Pomi Tomato Dip “Vegetable dips” can go two ways.  You can create a dip intended for dipping your raw raw vegetables into.. OR you can make the dip itself out of vegetables, right?  Well, for this delicious snack idea, we used vegetables as the dip!

This is just a pizza sauce dip, but we included some extra veggies, for a little extra nutrition and satiation, and some oregano for O-Week .  Here is our final recipe:

  • 1 box 26 ounces strained tomatoes (I used Pomi )
  • 1/2 cup other vegetable puree (like carrot, spinach, or squash)
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp. dried parsley
  • Garnish with fresh oregano

Mix all ingredients together and warm in the microwave.  Use homemade bread sticks or store bought.  With the lycopene, vitamin C, vitamin, A, and potassium, tomato sauce is a fabulous way to get vital nutrients in your kids.  Plus, who doesn’t like a yummy and delicious bread stick!

Did you grow your own herbs with us ?  They are ready to start cutting and drying so we can use them in recipes like these.  Check out how much they’ve grown in such a short amount of time:
