  • * When yogurt is placed in a coffee filter or cheesecloth-lined sieve (over a bowl) and allowed to drain for several hours, much of the extra moisture drains away, leaving a thicker consistency. The longer it's drained, the thicker it becomes, ultimately becoming the consistency of cream cheese.
  • ** Most raw vegetables such as carrots, celery, and broccoli slowly dry out on vegetable trays. To enhance color and help prevent drying, try blanching the firmer vegetables. Place each color group, working light to dark, in active boiling water for 5 to 15 seconds, being careful not to cook them, and then plunge directly into cold, icy water. When fully cooled, drain well and serve.

Worked perfect to shake up my monthly girls night in!

Cut down the cumin by about 1/2 and add a few dashes of hot sauce. It's better with chips than veggies, but either way it's very tasty!
