greetings, my fellow snackers and gourmet chip enthusiasts everywhere!
with the day for lovers turning the corner ever so soon, and your diet in full resolution mode, you may be asking yourself..”hmm..what can i serve my special someone that is tasty and won’t kill my weight-loss goals?”
if you’re thinking about taking your significant other out to a fancy schmancy restaurant, think about this..making a home cooked meal for your lover shows:
- you can cook!
- you really care!
- you love them without those handles!
as a weight-loss enthusiast and gourmet snack connoisseur, i decided to contact those wonderful people over in san francisco and request some of their magical crisps to help fuel my health recipe ideas. below, please find four great ideas to serve your special someone. whether they like it spicy, sweet, or savory…this should cover it.
spicy: sweet & spicy chicken on chili lime popchips. a bold and sweet fusion of asian inspired flavors which are a great alternative to many asian finger foods, and are usually chock full of fat and salt!
savory: turkey meatballs made with salt and pepper popchips. what says those three magical words more than turkey meatballs in red sauce?
sweet: pear and apple cobbler with sweet potato popchips crumble. cinnamon, nutmeg, a dash of coriander will add some zip to brown sugar, apples and pears which will be thickened by blonde roux. to finish hand-crush sweet potato popchips and sprinkle on top with a few helpings of brown sugar.
i hope you fall in love at first bite with these tasty dishes!
keep it poppin my friends!
