I thought I’d share a healthier recipe with you guys today, lest you start thinking that all we do in our household is sit around slathering sticks of butter onto strips of twisted bacon and frying up mac ‘n cheese for breakfast! Although I don’t hold back when it comes to comfort food and delicious treats, we do try to balance it out with healthy snacks and meals, too. I love this appetizer because it tastes great, it’s healthy and it looks great on a serving platter!
These little gems are very easy to make, too!
At this point you can place them in a sterilized jar, cover with olive oil and store them at room temperature until you’re ready to use them. Supposedly they’ll keep for several months, although we’ve never been able to keep them around that long!
You can do a lot of different things with these….sometimes I add chopped herbs and spices before rolling into balls or I roll them in a spice mixture just before serving (did you know most spices provide healthy antioxidants?). Grated lemon zest and a bit of garlic is a delicious combo, too! This time I just rolled them in some taco seasonings and served on cracked pepper Triscuits…but they’re awesome with pita bread, too! Just use your imagination – the sky’s the limit!
