Wassup Wasa?!

You're strollin down the cracker aisle (don't tell me I'm the only one to do this) and you pick up box after box of crackers loaded with ingredients you can't even name, and you don 't know whether to choose the multigrain or the reduced-fat. What's a person to do??

I've come to know
Wasa as a brand I can trust for healthy, delicious, hearty crackers, and was thrilled when they asked me to try their new line of Flatbreads. This thin & crispy line of whole grain thin crackers that help make eating well easy and fun. Available in Original, Sesame and Rosemary, these Flatbreads are delicious snack! Although I wish they were 100% whole grain (like some of their other products), and had more fiber but they are made with just a few ingredients, and oven baked for an unique taste and texture. A very thin cracker, they're like a blank canvas for toppings!
I wrangled Sarah into a taste test and we tried the three crackers with a white bean spread. I don't have a real recipe but it goes something like this:
  • In a food processor combine 1 can great northern beans, 1 head roasted garlic, generous dash of rosemary, black pepper, sprinkle of salt, and 1 tsp of olive oil. Process. Serve.

My favorite cracker flavor was the rosemary, but if you were eating with a sweet dip I'd recommend sesame or original.

If you need some "Snackspiration" head over to the Wasa’s Facebook page and check out the Create-A-Snack app for a chance to win a trip to Canyon Ranch Resort & Spa in Tucson, Arizona.

Maybe not the healthiest toppings, but I like to alternate between Laughing cow wedges, Butter or cream cheese :)

Get some hummus. Chop up some tomato, avocado and red onion. Mix. Spread on Wasa. Maybe even sprinkle a little feta cheese on top. YUM.

I would whip up some chickpea dessert hummus for these crackers :)

I'd top them with a smear of goat cheese, fresh tomato slices and a drizzle of balsamic.

Yum!! I am a cheese and cracker gal all the way. I love maybe even some melty brie with crackers. Yum!

I put hummus on mine, but I also just eat them without any topping!

Janel said...

Salsa! LOTS of salsa. It's my go-to snack.

Kara said...

Edamame hummus. I could eat it every day and it would taste great on Wasa crackers!
