Writing this post was a bit of fun for my whole family. Just recently, I was visiting my parents, and tucked into my bag was a few packages of Ryvita crispbreads.
I was sent these tasty little fellas in order to come up with some fun ways to dress them up. As my gang and I were already on spending time with my family, I thought it was a perfect opportunity to use the plethora of available taste testers and start trying out some concoctions.
First, I raided the fridge and came up with a host of different things that we thought might appeal to us.
My dad had a thing with Ryvita crispbreads for a while, so he was gladly willing to be my guinea pig. Lila and Lucy were a bit skeptical (“there are seeds on these crackers!”), but all of the adults were very intrigued!
The first toppings were quick and easy (and a hit!). Plain cream cheese and thinly sliced cucumbers from mom’s garden were quickly gobbled up.
Guys, I tried to make this pretty. It’s not.
But it tastes really good. This is Camembert cheese and red pepper jelly popped under the broiler for a few minutes. This combination was also a winner.
And finally, there is my favourite creation: vegetable salad atop a crispbread.
You’ve heard of egg and tuna salad – well, this is vegetable salad. I basically grab a carrot, a stick of celery and a green onion and whirr it up in the food processor with a glob of mayo. Then I spread the fabulous concoction on my Ryvitas.
I dress it with a sprinkle of paprika, chives and salt and pepper and then dig in.
It’s a delicious lunch. And filling, too!
I think I ate three of them. Whoopsie doo!
One of the biggest realizations from our Ryvita experiment was Lila’s LOVE of these crispbreads. She eats them plain – right out of the package – and asks for them as snacks. I’ll gladly hand them over, as they’re healthy wholegrain rye snacks.
Have at ‘er, kidlet!
