#DeliciousBowl by Chobani

Let’s just get right into it: I’m very excited to bring you today’s recipe!

I am participating in #DeliciousBowl by Chobani, with an original Super Bowl snack incorporating Chobani Greek yogurt. (You can search #DeliciousBowl on Instagram and Tumblr to find other participating bloggers!) Whipping things up in the kitchen is way too fun. (Remember my football snackies?) I won’t be hosting any Super Bowl get-togethers this year…but if I did, this Creamy Butternut Squash Dip would be there with some pita chips!

Creamy Butternut Squash Dip with Pitas (Stronglikemycoffee.com)The hardest part of this recipe-creation was deciding between sweet or savory. My sweet tooth screamed caramel apple dip… but in an unexpected twist, I went with something herb-y and cheese-y. And whaddaya know, it turned out pretty great.

Super Bowl Sunday Delicious Bowl Appetizer: Creamy Butternut Squash Dip with Pita Chips

  • 1 butternut squash, cubed
  • 4 Tbs. olive oil
  • dash of salt
  • dash of pepper
  • 1 Tbs. Garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 1 cup Chobani Greek Yogurt (Plain flavor, 0% fat)
  • sprinkle of Parsley
  • 1 Tbs. Oregano (I’m in love with the smell of oregano right now)
  • 1 Tbs. ground Sage
  • Pita chips for dipping (I used Wheat Thins’ new product Toasted Pita Chips)

1.) Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil.

2.) Toss the butternut squash cubes in 3 tablespoons of olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder.

3.) Roast for 30 minutes or until very soft, flipping half-way through.

4.) Combine the roasted squash, feta cheese, and remaining 1 Tbs. olive oil in a food processor. Place mixture in the refrigerator and allow to cool completely.

5.) Once the squash is totally cool, add Chobani Greek yogurt, sage, oregano, and parsley to the food processor. Combine until it’s one creamy mixture!

6.) I topped this #DeliciousBowl with some more parsley and feta for color and served with pita chips on the side.

I’m happy I went with the ‘savory’ selection! The spices and herbs are crazy-flavorful, and this recipe is a much healthier option than traditional cheesy or cream-based dips like ranch or onion. Greek yogurt adds fat-free creaminess with extra protein; herbs flavor the dish without sugar or excess sodium; squash and feta round out the recipe for some uniqueness.

Maybe this can even something to add to your Super Bowl XLIX menu…?

XOXO Kenz.
