If you’re in need of a fast off-the-shelf appetizer or snack, try Marin Gourmet’s Fire-Roasted and Garlic Spread and The Organic Pantry Turmeric Flax Seed Crackers made with Eggplant and Garlic spread.
This spread is made with simple ingredients: several varieties of eggplant, fresh home-grown herbs, garlic, olive oil, and no preservatives. Their crispy baked crackers pair perfectly with the tasty mesquite-flavored spread and are free of salt, sugar, and fat.
You can find the garlic spread and crackers at Farmer’s Markets and retail markets, such as Whole Foods and Mollie Stone’s Markets. Buy extra as it’s really addicting! (My kids love it!) Find a store here.
