Kurrajong Kitchen – Lavosh Bites
Sitting at home whilst Himself is on night shift is normally not too exciting. However. This particular night I was testing out my first box of Kurrajong Kitchen Lavosh Bites. YUM YUM. I made up the dip on the back of the pack (Rocket, Coriander and Macadamia) and settled down with a bit of Jamie Oliver on the telly for company. Now THAT’S what I call a great night in! Just a bit miffed I didn’t have any wine….
Rocket, Coriander & Macadamia Dip
Serves 6 (or two nights worth of very hungry Danni!!)
2 Cups firmly packed rocket leaves
1 cup fresh coriander leaves
2 Garlic cloves
1 small red chilli
1/3 cup toasted macadamias
2 tablespoons olive oil
40g Parmesan, grated
1/2 cup Greek Yoghurt or Sour Cream (I used the Yoghurt)
Salt & Ground Black Pepper to taste
THE HOW TO
Put your Rocket, Coriander, Garlic, Macadamias and chilli in a food processor and mix till finely chopped.
With the motor running, gradually add your oil and process till well combined.
Transfer to a bowl and stir in the Parmesan and Yoghurt. Season to taste.
Place in an airtight container and cover with a little olive oil to stop the air turning the rocket black.
Refrigerate for a little while to allow flavours to develop.
NOTES ABOUT KURRAJONG KITCHEN LAVOSH BITES
- 1 x 145g box of Lavosh Bites costs $3.49 (RRP) and are available from your local Coles or Woolworths Supermarket
- Available in Original, Poppy & Sesame, Soy & Linseed and Shepherds Bread Sesame & Sea Salt…
- Kurrajong Kitchen is in Windsor, NSW which is local to me! (Gotta love that)
- I love how they come packed in foil for freshness (Makes keeping some for later easy);
- They were nice and bite sized;
- Did they taste good alone? Yes. The girls were scoffing them! ;
- Did they go with the dip recipe on the pack? Absodoodlelootely! The dip was a sensation;
- What did the others think? The family really enjoyed them, as did our friends who had them at a lunch we attended. They went fantastically with the gooey Brie Cheese as well as the antipasto platter! ;
- Would I buy them again? You know, I think I actually would. A nice alternative to chips and thin enough you can have a stack of them with dip/cheese etc and not feel like a greedy bugger! They are not too expensive and everyone enjoyed them. WIN!!
- Both Miss E and Master O like to snack on them, and since they are egg-free I can confidently give them to Master O without any concerns of a reaction. Absolute bonus!
- I like the fact that they look a bit more fancy than your regular water crackers so are great for entertaining.
- I’ve had them with goats cheese, numerous dips and on their own and they work well with all those things, though personally I’m not as much of a fan of them just on their own (I found a couple of the flavours were too dry by themselves). The kids loved them alone or with something to dip them into.
- I’ve already bought two more packs!
I also whipped up a dip. I tried a corn relish dip that the lovely Kurrajong Kitchen people supplied. My Mother in Law makes a cracking corn relish dip, so this one had a lot to live up to. Turns out it was pretty similar – I’ll have to dig out her recipe and have a comparison soon!
Corn Relish Dip
Makes: approximately 3 cups (definitely enough for a party/entertaining, so perfect for Christmas parties )
Prep: 10 minutes
250 g block cream cheese
250g jar corn relish
300g can creamed corn
1 cup tasty cheese
2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
THE HOW TO
Place cream cheese into a large mixing bowl, beat with an electric mixer until smooth.
Add corn relish, creamed corn, tasty cheese and chilli sauce and mix until well combined.
