Today I have something nice for you guys. But even more I have something nice for my Bridesmaids, as they are the ones that actually come and eat the food I have prepared.
I am getting married this summer and even if we don’t have the tradition with the Maids here in Switzerland, I believe it’s a lovely one. So for our special day this summer, I’ve decided to have my friends of honor and best sisters being my Bridesmaids. And as they do so much for me through this time (just thinking about all my wedding bla bla they deal with), tonight I can give them back just a little bit, by cooking for them and celebrate our friendships.
With a big plate full of veggie sticks and some Corn Tortillas to Dip. But these Lentil crackers! Guys! Heaven!
It’s all low fat, vegan, healthy and super yummie!
Happy Weekend everyone,
