Quick Feta and Olive Dip

My daughter likes to message me her food requests from school and the other day she had a desperate need for olive dip and Jatz crackers!

The craving wasn’t random, it was triggered by what one of her friends was eating for lunch that day and which got my daughter salivating!

As you can imagine my mind went directly to ‘how can I recreate the healthy version of this’ mode, but understanding that true cravings need to be met otherwise they don’t go away, I bought her them from the supermarket as a once of and boy did she enjoy it!

Since then I took to task to recreate the dip and it’s darn delicious! I toasted up some Lebanese bread with za’atar spread as a crunchy dipping alternative to the Jatz crackers.

Home-made dips take 5 minutes to make and aren’t full of processed oils, preservatives, sugar, and numbers like most store-bought ones.  And remember, if you have a picky eater, studies show they are more likely to eat their veggies if paired with a dip! Give it a go!
