Super Magic Meal Extender

Everyone knows it's all about having the right tool for the job. How do you extend a dish to feed the family (or have leftovers for lunch for yourself? Introducing Windcrest Plain Yogurt.

I feel like this should be a dreamy, glossy, glamour shot, but this isn't just a bit of fluff. This is serious, hard-working, get-the-job-done business here. With your plain regular or plain Greek Windcrest or YoBul yogurt, you can get more bang for your food bucks, add creaminess without undue calories, and create healthier sauces and dips to replace the high-cal, low-nutrient commercial versions. 

- Add to Kitchen Kutlture prepared dishes, such as the amazing Tomato Lentil Soup or Asparagus Fennel Soup. These soups are so packed with personality that mixing nearly 50/50 still gives you a delicious, flavorful cold soup, sauce or dip, to which you can add cucumber, tomato and even protein, like cooked chicken. You can extend the Saag Paneer with yogurt and extra veggies, as well as your favorite protein, and serve over rice, grits or pasta.

- Make a creamy tomato sauce for your pasta by adding a few dollops of yogurt to your Ozark Forest or Marina's Marinara.

- Add a little yogurt to Del Carmen Cuban Beans, Hummus, Dip or Soup to extend them, add a bit of creaminess and reduce the calories per serving. Plain yogurt with Del Carmen Mojo makes for a delicious salad dressing or sauce for your protein. Get creative!

- Use plain Greek yogurt, which has a nice, sharp tartness, in place of--or to cut the amount of--sour cream or mayonnaise in dips for chips or veggies and in egg, chicken, or tuna salads.
