A Dip to Celebrate

Ring in the New Year with a mouth-watering party dip that’s healthy, too. This week’s Health-e-Recipe for Roasted Red Pepper and Eggplant Spread is simple to make and full of cancer-fighting ingredients.

Garlic, a powerful cancer-fighting food, permeates this mixture of bell peppers and eggplant. Sweet red and orange bell peppers have plenty of vitamins C and A. Luscious eggplant, a botanical relative of peppers, has some fiber and is low in calories. It’s a staple in Mediterranean cooking.

Olive oil, a healthful plant food, contains monounsaturated fat. The extra-virgin variety tastes best and has more phytochemicals than more highly processed versions.

So enjoy this low-calorie dip in good health! For more delicious holiday recipes that fight cancer, visit the AICR Test Kitchen. Click here to subscribe to our weekly Health-e-Recipes.
