Have you ever looked at a recipe and rolled your eyes, thinking, “Yeah, right! I’m never making that! It’s way too complicated!” Welcome to the story of our life and the idea behind this recipe.
In its most basic form, baba ganoush is made with eggplant, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and salt. We found that adding a tiny bit of ground cumin, smoked paprika and fresh parsley takes it to the next level.
This baba ghanoush is:
PRO TIP: What is the trick to a perfectly tasting eggplant? To salt the eggplant before cooking it. As bizarre as this method may sound, it has never failed us. Salt will help to draw the bitter liquid out from the eggplant while simultaneously seasoning the eggplant from the inside out. It also helps the eggplant pieces stay more shapely and become tender during cooking instead of becoming water-logged and soggy.
DO AHEAD: Dip can be made 3 days ahead. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Let baba ghanoush warm to room temperature before serving.

It’s important in the life of a snacker to have a collection of condiments and spreads so vast you’ll never get bored. Or this is what we tell ourselves when we go hunting in the pantry for our precious salted vanilla peanut cacao spread. Everybody’s favorite ingredients—vanilla, peanuts and cacao—mixed together into a spread and there is nothing not to love about this fact.
This brilliant spread has the smooth, spreadable texture of peanut butter, but a rich, chocolaty flavor that we have to admit—tastes like frosting. The jar beside our keyboard as we speak won’t last too long. Homemade! Delicious! It whispers. Vegan! 100% Pure! We almost forgot one: Gluten-free! There’s a lot going on here. But this is a chocolate spread, people, made with powdered sugar. If you want health food, sub with maple syrup.

Lentils in the morning, lentils in the evening, lentils at suppertime. We stan lentils over here at Smartbite Snacks. What’s not to love? They're cheap, relatively quick-cooking, packed with protein, and cute as hell. And, to top it all off, they're an essential component of one of our all-time favorite food categories: The Soup Group.
The soup weather is here to stay for a while and nothing makes us crave soup like a little bit of rain and little bit of freezing temperatures. Red lentils are your mush-town friends when you crave that fall-apart texture when you’re making that thick, full of chunks and flavor coconut-y + mushroom-y lentil and tomato curry. Oh, hell yeah. It’s starting to smell like soup.
