The winner of the 3 Astro Original Greek Yogourt coupons is : Melinda! Congratulations Melinda - you will be receiving your coupons soon!
I have been experimenting with some of the recipes provided by Astro, and so far my 2 favorities are the Egg Plant Dip and Cranberry/Blueberry Smoothie
Grilled Eggplant and Yogourt Dip
1 eggplant (about 1 lb/450 g)
¾ cup Astro® Original Plain
1 clove garlic, minced
1½ tsp lemon juice
1 tsp olive oil
½ tsp salt
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1. Pierce eggplant all over with a fork. Place on a greased grill over medium heat; close
lid and grill, turning once, until charred and wrinkled and flesh is softened, about 20
minutes. Let stand until cool enough to handle.
2. Slice eggplant open and scoop flesh into a bowl, discarding skin. Mash and let drain
in fine-mesh sieve for 20 minutes.
3. In a bowl, combine yogourt, eggplant, garlic, lemon juice, oil and salt.
4. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
Garnish with parsley. Makes 1½ cups.
I enjoyed this dip with a sliced up baguette and pita wedges - delicious!
You know what though? The Astro Original Greek Yogourt is great on its own also. It is so thick and creamy, and it doesn't have a too strong tartness to it like some plain yogourts do. Go on out and try it for yourself!
I would like to thank Parmalat Canada for the opportunity to work with them on this giveaway, and for supplying the winner with 3 FPC's!
