Late Night Veggie Snacks


Chances are, if you’re a CSA member, you like to cook. And if you like to cook, your house could maybe be described as an ingredient household, versus a snacky one. But sometimes, you just want a SNACK. Especially late in the evening, when dinner is a distant memory and you just need a little sumpin sumpin.


Let’s snack, winter edition:

Dips:

You get the chips or crackers, then make a big batch of veggie-centric dip. Or, reverse the equation. Buy a vat of hummus, and use your VRDNT veggies as shovels. For easy snacking, pre-peel carrots, separate romaine leaves, and slice radishes. 



Pickles:

There are those among you who I like to call pickle-people. Your favorite chips are salt and vinegar, you love all things pickley, and you lean more toward mustard than mayo. I first learned about pickle people when roomign in college with my friend Megan whose taste buds were notably more sour than mine. For all the pickle people out there, a jar of pickled veggies may be the only snack you need. 



Air Fryer/Dehydrator/Oven Things: 


Rollups:

One of my favorite snacks, sometimes assembled without ever closing the fridge door, is a sturdy leaf, piled with deli meat, a slice of cheese, and creamy condiments like ranch or mayonnaise. Romaine is the obvious choice here, but kale, collards, cabbage, or any head lettuce would work. 



Sweets: 

While all these snacks require some significant prep/cooking, there’s no reason you can’t make veggie-centric snacks for when the sweet tooth hits.
