Cracker Crostini

Cracker Crostini

A simple, satisfying and fun snack, side to a big bowl of soup or roasted veggies – crackers + dip!

Now that I’m going into office twice a week not just for me, but the whole family, I’ve had to rummage through their drawers to bring back their forgotten stuff – which also is quite a bit of fun. I found bars of chocolate, candy, peanuts and these gorgeous rye crackers which are now all part of my personal stash.

These crackers needed a showcase of its own – they are that good.

Ideally, a bit of good quality cheese and a sweet preserve would be wonderful and my go-to, but I’ve ran out of cheese, cream cheese and all kinds of spreads – so I had to lean towards the next best thing – a hung curd dip. I make at least a cup or so of it at all times in the fridge – it’s cooling, delicious and versatile. With the current heatwave, this yoghurt is an amazing savior – dip for chips, crudites, lavash, khari biscuit, plain biscuit, into sandwich, on top of potatoes… the list is endless!
