Raw “Grilled Cheese” Crackers and Sun-dried Tomato Dip

Sometimes you just get cravings. I get them, you get them, we all get them. This past week, being in full pregnancy mode, I was in dire need of a grilled cheese sandwich dipped in old-fashioned tomato soup. Since it has been so blistering hot, it was really the flavors I was craving, not so much the heat, so I devised a way to have it all. I came up with a recipe for raw “grilled cheese” crackers and sun-dried tomato dip. While not a full meal, being a snack I can eat them all day long instead! Way better in my book.

To upgrade the recipe in order to make it far more nutritionally dense than the original, I decided to make the crackers out of nuts and veggies rather than flour. I also used nutritional yeast instead of cheese. If you haven’t tried nutritional yeast yet, don’t be scared off by its name. It is a food powder that tastes so similar to cheese you will be mind blown. It is a vegan option that is packed with B vitamins, including the elusive B12, making it a plant-based diet food essential. I then decided to dehydrate the crackers, which keeps the nutrients in tact, rather than baking them (although that could be an option too if you don’t have a dehydrator). The result? Moist crackers bursting with flavor and good-for-you vitamins, minerals and healthy fats. Dip them in this sun-dried tomato dip, and watch your tastebuds do a happy dance.

Now off to eat more of these raw “grilled cheese” crackers and sun-dried tomato dip!
