Pull together a satisfying snack or light lunch addition with this sponsored Feta Hummus Toast recipe.
As co-owner of The Recipe ReDux I was compensated to host this recipe contest.
When we come up with themes for The Recipe ReDux or sponsors challenge us (as in today's ReDux), often I have to sit and think a bit to decide what type of recipe to share. It's especially challenging when recipes are outside of my normal food fare (Like the little fish cakes I made from sardines for The Recipe ReDux years ago. They sound yuck, but they're so good! Reminds me that I need to share that recipe with you guys. Soon. Very soon.)
Anyway, then again sometimes, I get lucky. The challenge is so "me" and the way I eat, that it's a no brainer. That's the case with this week's recipe contest being sponsored by Real California Milk, which focuses solely on snack recipes... but not just snacks mid-afternoon or mid-morning -- anytime snacks.
I love this theme because that's truly how many of my meals come together -- simple pairings of reasonable portions of nutritious foods. When you say "meal" it conjures up images of belabored cooking. But snacks can be a simple combo of a few food groups that combine to make a tasty, healthy small meal.
Today's toast recipe is a classic from my kitchen. I almost always have the ingredients on hand and it takes no time to prepare. I regularly eat this for a late afternoon snack or sometimes as lunch. There's no irony lost on me that Real California Milk is sponsoring this contest, given that I seldom have a meal or snack that doesn't have a little dairy in it. I mean, let's be honest -- cheese, yogurt and milk make everything better!
And Real California Milk makes some of the best dairy foods around and rightfully so. They know A LOT about dairy farming. In fact, California is the country’s leading producer of milk, ice cream, butter, nonfat dry milk, and whey protein. It’s the second largest producer of cheese and yogurt, all made with milk from more than 1,400 California dairy families. Not sure how to find Real California Milk foods? Simply look for foods that feature the Real California Milk or Cheese Seal:
