These homemade snack recipes don't require much time in the kitchen. They are quick to prepare so that you can munch on them and not miss an exciting minute of the Olympics.
Amazing Olympic athletes could inspire you to eat healthy. Instead of filling up on regular chips, get your daily dose of vegetables. Slice beets, turnips, parsnips and radishes as thin as you possibly can. Add the sliced vegetables to a big mixing bowl and toss with 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Spread the chips on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt, pepper and your favourite fresh herbs. Roast them in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes until th
ey are golden and crisp.
Enjoy this crunchy snack while watching ski jumps and hockey games. Start by popping about 4 cups of popcorn. Using a large, microwave-safe bowl, stir 3-1/2 cups small pretzels and 3/4 cup of nuts of your choice into the popcorn. In a small bowl, mix a packet of ranch dip seasoning with vegetable oil. Stir the ranch sauce into the dry components and coat everything evenly. Microwave the mix for 1 minute, stir and then microwave for another minute. Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on the mix and serve.
A nice hot cup of pizza might not be something you've heard of before, but mug pizzas are easy to make. You mix up an easy dough batter from flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, olive oil and milk. Dab the dough into a big mug and cover with about a tablespoon of marinara sauce. Top with shredded mozzarella cheese and your preferred pizza toppings. Sprinkle with a blend of Italian herbs. Microwave the mug for about 1 minute until bubbly. Make as many as you need.
