Are you tired of the same ol’ boring snacks? The ones that are easy to grab but leave you feeling guilty about those extra calories? We’ve all been there, and we get it… you want something quick, but it’s got to be tasty and healthy too, right?
Well, Shana’s got your back! Imagine whipping up a snack that’s as good for your body as it tastes and doing it all in as little as 10 minutes. So, let’s ditch the guilt and make snacking fun and nutritious again with some simple, delicious recipes.
1. Shana okra skewers
Skewer some fresh Shana Okra on skewer sticks, and then coat each of them with a rich marinade of chili flakes, sesame seeds, soy sauce, and sriracha. Pop these in a preheated oven at 180°C for 15 minutes or grill them for 5-8 minutes for a charred, smoky flavor.
In the end, you’re gonna get some juicy, flavor-packed okra skewers, ready to be relished with an extra drizzle of marinade.
2. Chocolate date swirls
Craving something sweet? Mix finely chopped dates and almonds with melted chocolate and spread this mixture over a paratha. Roll it, slice it, and bake at 180°C for 10-15 minutes. These chocolate date swirls combine the richness of chocolate with the natural sweetness of dates (no guilt of added white sugar), all wrapped in a crispy wholewheat paratha!
3. Raspberry coconut date bars
These bars are a basic combo of Shana shredded coconut, dates, and pecans, blended into a sticky, dough-like mixture. Mix this with a dash of vanilla, a pinch of salt, and frozen raspberries for a tangy twist.
Press this blend into a tray, sprinkle some more coconut, and freeze. In about an hour, you’ve got yourself sweet, tangy, coconutty bars that are just as healthy as they are tasty.
4. Crispy okra fries
And who doesn’t love fries!! But why don’t we give a healthy twist to it? Toss Shana whole baby okras in a mixture of oil and a blend of spices including salt, red chili powder, coriander powder, garam masala, and turmeric.
Cook these in an air fryer at 180°C for 12 minutes to get that irresistible crunch. Serve these crispy okra fries with your favorite dip for a snack that’s both flavorsome and guilt-free.
5. Cheesy spinach chapati rolls
To all who want to go all cheesy (pun intended); start by sautéing onions and garlic, then add Shana Spinach and seasonings. Once cooled, spread this mixture on a Shana wholewheat chapati, top with mozzarella cheese, and roll it up. Air fry these rolls until crisp and golden for a delicious and healthy snack.
The combination of creamy mozzarella and the basic taste of spinach wrapped in a crispy chapati makes for a snack that’s easy to make and easy to love.
6. Chapati bowls
Now you can transform Shana wholemeal chapatis into these adorable little bowls, perfect for holding a variety of fillings. Just drape a chapati over a small dish and bake for 10 minutes. Fill these bowls with fillings of your own choice or some wholegrain rice, spiced chickpeas, fresh lettuce, red cabbage, carrot, and red pepper. It’s a fun kind of snack that lets you get innovative with flavors while keeping things healthy and light.
