Momba's Vegan Carrot Butter
Incredible! 5.0/5

Great spread on bread in place of your traditional dairy laden butter. Use on baked potatoes, roasted corn, or add lots of garlic and use it with garlic bread.

Spicy Garlic Yogurt dip/dressing
Very Good 4.3/5

If you want something else to dip your chips or veggies in, this is a spicy change from typical dressings or dips. This is definitely for garlic lovers. Some hints are given in the instruction for making this recipe versitile and still remain healthy.

A tasty north african dip that is easily adjustable to suit your preferences. As written this is pretty mild--I usually double the spices and use about 1/4 tsp. cayenne (but I like spicy food, so start conservatively and adjust to your own preferences!). If it does get too hot, stir in some yogurt to quench the flames! I also use this as a sandwich spread for roasted vegetable sandwiches--it's very versatile!

These baked jalapeno poppers really hit the spot an d you can make them spicy if you want to by adding some chopped jalapenos or jarred juice. I use my fresh grown peppers and jarred 50% less fat bacon along with 1/3 less fat cream cheese and 2% milk shredded cheese so these are lower in fat and calories than a lot of other varieties. You will have many different sized peppers so I just give 2 oz as a serving size. My mix made a total of about 27 oz with peppers and mix which yields about 13.5 servings of 2 oz. each.

Adapted from a recipe seen on 101 Cookbooks, this is a spectacular, powerful boost to your morning whether you serve it warm or chill it down for a midday "pudding". Any berries can be used, I prefer strawberries or blueberries, or a mix!
