Spicy Roasted Eggplant Dip Simple Truth Chips Honest Tea

As a fan of most shows that deal with everything and anything home related, I figured buying a home and selling another simultaneously wouldn’t be too stressful. Throw in the prospect of a handsome handyman and an attractive agent, and, I figured, it could even be like a walk in the park – on a cool evening. Yes, that’s what I thought at the beginning of September. But now that we are at the tail end of it, y’all, I gotta say, it’s been more like an all out, uphill sprint, in 100 degree heat AND 100% humidity!
I speak from experience on that latter sprint. Been there. Done that. Don’t wanna do that ever again.

Last minute changes to closing dates and moving plans tend to throw the crazy into this life of mine. And, when life gets crazy, I have to make it a conscious decision not to live on mocha chia shakes alone. Seeing that September happened to be National Organic Month, I figured during this crazy time of buying and selling, I’d throw in some better for me snacking options like the Simple Truth® variety of snacks and crackers found at Kroger.

This past weekend my daughter was visiting from college so I decided to whip up a Spicy Roasted Eggplant Dip to accompany the Simple Truth® 7 Ancient Grains Rice Crackers I had brought home from my last Kroger rendezvous. This dip is so easy and with organic roasted eggplant, onion and garlic in the ingredient list, this is so flavorful too. I used a serrano pepper in this dip to add in a bit of a kick – but that serrano pepper is totally optional. However, do know that if you added it in, then, any just a tad sweet Honest Tea® is a delicious way to wash it all down with.

Honest Tea stands for Honesty and transparency – from the way their ingredients are presented, to their efforts to help make the earth a better place. Just take a sip and taste the honest difference.

Simple Truth® also has a line of Organic crackers we keep on hand – sometimes for dipping into dips like this Roasted eggplant dip. But, most times for just snacking on while running errands.

This weekend I made use of the fact that my daughter was home and enlisted her help in cleaning up the yard a tad bit and then we took a break with this dip and some cold and refreshing Honest Tea®! With moving and unpacking and the works around the corner, I need to head to Kroger and stock up on more Honest Tea® and Simple Truth® snacks!

  5. Oh gosh, I really do hate moving! I mean it’s fun and exciting on one hand, but super stressful on the other. This dip sounds like a tasty way to deal with the stressed that come along with moving! I love a good roasted eggplant dip, and I definitely want to try yours out! Hope you have a great weekend, my friend!

  6. You always make the prettiest food! And girl! I hear you–we bought our home for the first time last year and I also thought it would be lots of fun but it wasn’t very much fun at all until it was all over with! Hang in there! Thank goodness for tasty better treats to get us through!

  7. My husband and I love this dip as well. Great for my Netflix movie marathon on weekends chillax day.

  8. Jennifer says:

    This dip looks yummy and I love the Simple Truth brand. I always look for it when I am shopping!

  9. Moving is definitely a stressful time! Good luck with it all and I hope there are no more changes! I totally get what you mean though, when life gets ridiculously busy I just grab and go and it’s not always the best or healthiest choices. This spicy dip looks fabulous and so versatile; I bet it’s fab with pita dipped in too; it’s the kind of dip I want to dip everything into and eat off the spoon; yum!

  10. I’ve never tried eggplant in a dip but I bet it is tasty when roasted. Of course, I would have to add the serrano pepper for a little heat too ’cause that’s the way I roll! Hope you are all settled in now and can put all that stress behind you.

  11. Moving can be so stressful! I hope everything finishes smoothly for you! My family would love this dip. Perfect for game day!
