TV Tuesday #16 – 5 Minute 4 Ingredient Raw Power Bars (DF, GF, Sugar Free, Vegan)

What’s the number 1 reason most people give for not eating healthy?

Not enough time.

What’s the second reason?

It’s expensive.

What if you had one recipe that took 5 minutes to make (seriously, no hyperbole here), had super cost effective ingredients, and was nutritionally dense? What if that recipe was so flexible that the ingredients could be subbed in and out to accommodate available ingredients, allergies and budgets?

Walnut Feta Cheese Dip

As we approach the Christmas season, it’s great to have an arsenal of easy, healthy appetizers to bring with you to parties or to entertain your own guests. It’s been awhile since I’ve featured anything from Mollie Katzen, so I thought this would be a great opportunity to write about one of our favorite dips from her awesome cookbook, Moosewood Cookbook. We make Mollie’s Walnut Feta Dip anytime of the year but it especially comes in handy during the holiday season. There’s really only 3 ingredients that you’ll need to have on hand to make this and they’re pretty basic one’s at that. Walnuts, feta and parsley make up the core of this tasty little dip.
