Spring into Summer with Ryvita

Ryvita has been around since 1925, producing delicious crispbread.  It has been a store cupboard staple in most homes over the years.  But now with the help of Valentine Warner, author of "What to Eat Now", you no longer need to stick to having your Ryvita with a slice of cheese and some pickle!  Using seasonal produce, Warner has come up with some ultimate seasonal toppings to compliment a variety of Ryvita.

The recipes are perfect for the long, warm days ahead.  From a zesty new potato and broad bean salad atop Original Ryvita as a lunchtime treat, to a Steak Tartare piled high on a Cracked Black Pepper Crisbread for an al fresco meal to the Ryvita Sunflower Seeds and Oats Crispbread Crumble to end a summer's eve, there is a recipe that will tantalise your tastebuds!


4 Ryvita Sunflower Seeds and Oats Crispbread
2 small Cox's Apples (peeled, cored and chopped small)
3 tbs dark, runny honey
1 tbs lemon juice
3 tbs sultanas
1 small thumb of ginger finely chopped
5 tbs water
6 tbs clotted cream
6 dates chopped
8 walnuts chopped
orange zest grated

Put apples in a small pan with water, ginger, honey, lemon juice and sultanas.  Simmer for about 12 minutes until stewed.  Add an extra splash of water if needed while cooking.  Allow to cool.  Chop dates and nuts.  Spread 1 1/2 tbs clotted cream on each crispbread.  Cover with a layer of warm apple.  Scatter on dates, walnuts and orange zest.  Enjoy!!

I love how versatile Ryvita is.  Valentine Warner says:
"..the endless flavour combinations and topping ideas continue to inspire me."

I have a favourite Ryvita topping.  It is my Ryvita Mexican Fiesta.  Smother a Ryvita Sweet Chilli Thin with a spoonful of warm refried beans, blob on some Discovery Hot Salsa sauce and sprinkle over grated Mexicana cheese.  Pop under a hot grill just until cheese melts.  Squirt on some Discovery Sour Cream topping.  You can pop on a couple of sliced Discovery Jalapenos if you like it extra hot!  Yummy!!

Why don't you try one of these recipes, or come up with your own idea for a healthy, tasty snack or meal using one of Ryvitas variety of crispbread!  The website has lots of ideas!
