Top 5 Healthy Savoury Snacks!
- Sweet Potato Toast:
You won't meet a bigger bread lover than me but sometimes you need to take a bit of a break from bread. Have you tried sweet potato toast instead? Sweet potatoes are a great vegetable to have on hand during self isolation because they last for ages and are very versatile. And they go perfectly with sweet or savoury toppings!
- Rice Paper Rolls With Extra Salad
I love rice paper rolls but my favourite part isn't necessarily the vermicelli which is a bit too much like filler for me. I prefer filling my rice paper rolls with extra salad which gives flavour and crunch! See how easy these are to make in the recipe below.
Hummus is one of the easiest and tastiest dips to make-all you need is a food processor (or a mortar and pestle!). This recipe below is flavoured with lime and chilli. Pair it with carrot sticks, crackers or the low carb bread below.
- Low Carb Bread:
This low carb bread is worth trying at least once to satisfy your curiosity! This is a high protein low carb bread dubbed "cloud bread" and slices up for sandwiches well!
- Cauliflower Cheese bites:
Sometimes when you're scrolling through Netflix and you just want to eat snacks for dinner (who me?) these cauliflower cheese bites will do. Long time readers may know that I'm very fond of baking instead of frying and these tasty nuggets are crunchy and taste deep fried thanks to a cheese and panko crust!
So tell me Dear Reader, which savoury snack do you like the sound of the best?
