posted by Estelle February 3, 2012 0 comments

The Super Bowl is this weekend which means LOTS of food will be eaten and will mostly be chicken wings, nachos, pizza, donuts, etc. I wanted to share a few ideas of snacks that you can incorporate into your weekend that you don’t have to feel guilty about and that are very tasty!

This first recipe is one I found on all recipes and it is AMAZING!
Tomato Bruschetta 
6 roma tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup oil packed sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
3 cloves garlic
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Mix all ingredients together and let it sit for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors marinate, serve with your favorite baguette!

This hummus is my sister-in-laws recipe from wholefoodmommies, so good!
Pesto Hummus
1 15oz can of garbanzo beans
juice from a small lemon
1 tbs of tahini (optional)
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp pesto
1/2 bunch cilantro
1/2 bunch parsley
1/4 cup water
Put all ingredients in your blender or food processor until it reaches your desired consistency. Serve with veggie platter 

My husband makes the best guacamole on the planet! He doesn’t measure anything so here is a rough idea of what he does

Gabe’s Guacamole 
3 large avocadoes
2 large garlic cloves, minced
juice from 1 lemon 
1 1/2 tbsp Franks Red Hot
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp seasoning salt
Mash your avocadoes first and then add rest of ingredients. Experiment with how you like it!
