{Today’s Lunchbox} Red Pepper Goodness

This morning, the natural light was grey because of an impending thunderstorm, so I decided to try something I generally avoid and snap the picture in the kitchen, seeing as the artificial light was actually a tiny bit better than the greyness outside.  You can tell my lunchbox is between the Vita and the rice cooker (360 tour of the kitchen).  The contents are:

I don’t know why I have not made the Cheezy Red Pepper Hemp Dip in so long – it is delicious and just as good as I remembered. In fact, I found three ways to use it when I made dinner last night:

I used the dip to dress some white beans, but also tossed it with kelp noodles and as a dip for roasted okra. Rounded out with some baby spinach (which you can see under the mound of kelp and beans) this was a splendid meal.  Now I am sad I am out of kelp noodles and need to place an order ASAP. When I am stocked up, you will see many lunchboxes much like the above dinner (maybe minus the okra, which is only good straight out of the oven).

Have a great night!

That is on my top 5 recipes I ever made, and it's my fave dip/sauce. I am so obsessed. I have to make it when I get back to DC and put it over kelp noodles.

Also: gingery carrot sunflower crackers. Get excited.

I have to laugh whenever I read about the chia pudding for the exhausted. I could tag that on to 99% of foods I make. Like "spoonful of peanut butter for the exhausted" or "smoothie for the exhausted". perhaps we should write a cookbook of healthy food for the exhausted. :-)

Are these the last of your kelp noodles from the Great Sage trip?! Sad! If it helps you can also buy them at Mom's market in VA, but then you need a car. I say you need to place an order. I also love that dip. Thank you Gena!

Mmmmm, that dip looks gorgeous for those roasted okra pods. Am checking out the recipe now. Nice!

I really must try Gena's cheezy red pepper hemp dip soon.

Hope you're having a great weekend!
